Dysphagia as a symptom of diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (Forestier-Rotes disease). A case report and literature review



Dysphagia as a symptom of diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (Forestier-Rotes disease). A case report and literature review



Acta Otorrinolaringologica Espanola 48(2): 161-163



Swallowing disorders can be caused by cervical spine diseases, such as diffuse skeletal hyperostosis (DISH). This entity is diagnosed as a cause of dysphagia only after excluding all other possible causes. We report a case in which dysphagia was the initial symptom of DISH. The most important clinical and diagnostic aspects of the disease are discussed.
