Clinical symptoms of stylohyoid chain ossification vary from ear pain to dysphagia. It is usually diagnosed coincidentally. Localized ossification of the chain is common, whereas diffuse ossification is rare. Herein, a case with bilateral diffuse stylohyoid chain ossification diagnosed with computed tomography, which was performed in order to evaluate the patient's temporomandibular joint pain, a rare onset of this condition, is discussed.
