Abstract

Forestier's syndrome (diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis) is characterized by ossification of the anterolateral aspect of at least four contiguous vertebral bodies. The exact etiology is unclear. Diagnosis is made by radiologic examinations. In this report, we present a case of Forestier's syndrome who admitted with complaints of dysphagia, cervical pain and dyspnea. The diagnosis was based on radiological examinations. Clinic and radiological characteristics of our case were discussed in the light of literature data.
