Bifid condyle is a rare anatomic modification of mandibular condyle caused by developmental or traumatic reasons, and often diagnosed incidentally on routine radiographic examination. Eagle's syndrome (ES) occurs when an elongated styloid process or calcified stylohyoid ligament causes recurrent throat pain or foreign body sensation, dysphagia, or orofacial pain. On the other hand, Ely's cysts are focal subchondral cysts resulting from bony remodelling and osteoarthritic changes. Here, we report a case depicting an interesting combination of all the abovementioned entities in a single patient.
