  • Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis

    Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) is a bony hardening (calcification) of ligaments in areas where they attach to your spine.Also known as Forestier's disease, diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis may cause no symptoms and require no treatment. The most common symptoms are mild to moderate pain and stiffness in your upper back. DISH can also affect your neck and lower back. Some people have DISH in other areas, such as shoulders, elbows, knees and heels. A non-inflammatory condition, DISH can be progressive. As it worsens, it can cause serious complications.

    The treatment of DISH involves treating each bothersome symptom. If no bothersome symptoms are present, then no treatment is necessary. The treatment of DISH should be individualized for the patient and their specific signs and symptoms.
