    Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) describes a phenomenon characterized by a tendency toward ossification of ligaments. It most characteristically affects the spine. Ossification of the longitudinal ligaments of the spine produces a tortuous paravertebral mass anterior to and distinct from the vertebral bodies.
