肩甲舌骨筋症候群例 A Case of Omohyoid Muscle Syndrome
Omohyoid muscle syndrome was first reported in 1969. Only two cases of this disease were reported in Japan. The patient was a 27-year-old woman, who had been complaining of so-called globus sensation during swallowing for several years. She also had slight foreign body sensation in the right neck. Right lateral mass during swallowing was detected in correspondence with the omohyoid muscle by ultrasonography. Surgery was carried out under general anesthesia. The muscle was excised at the central tendon. The patient immediately became free from globus sensation during swallowing. Pathological examination did not demonstrate any specific change in the muscle specimen except for hypertrophy.
