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 (especially the anterior ligaments) of the spine produces a tortuous paravertebral mass anterior to and distinct (at least radiologically) from the vertebral bodies....

Paraspinal ligaments undergo degeneration, secondary to attrition, and often ossify. This condition is broadly termed spinal enthesopathy. Physicians recognize 3 syndromes associated with this phenomenon, including (1) Forestier disease (most common; involving anterior longitudinal ligaments) and a more diffuse variant (exhibiting additional extra-axial features) that is termed diffuse idiopathic skeletal...
