Term Detail
MP term:abnormal styloid process morphology
Synonym: abnormal processus styloideus ossis temporalis
MP id: MP:0008023
Definition: any structural anomaly in the slender needle-like pointed projection that runs downward and slightly forward from the base of the inferior surface of the petrous portion of the temporal bone where it joins the tympanic portion; it gives attachment to the styloglossus, stylohyoid, and stylopharyngeus muscles and the stylohyoid and stylomandibular ligaments
