We came across an adult human dry skull, which had bilateral elongated styloid process. Total length of the process was 8 cm and it was 1 cm thick at the base. Styloid process proper was 5 cm long and remaining 3 cm was ossified stylohyoid ligament. In another case, on left side of a male cadaver the styloid process was 6.3 cm long and 1 cm thick at the base. The right side styloid was of normal length.
