Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis Causing Dysphagia: A Case Report

Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis is a noninflammatory systemic disease characterized by the osteophyte formation of vertebrae and ossification of various extraspinal ligaments. Although DISH is a relatively common disease, cervical involvement causing dysphagia is rare. In this report, we present such a case. The clinical features, diagnosis and the treatment of DISH are also discussed.
