Caption: Forestier's disease. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of a section through the cervical spine (neck) of a 42-year-old Asian patient suffering from a stiff neck and neck pain. There are signs of ossification of the posterior vertebral ligament (white arrows) around the C2, C3 and C4 vertebrae, suggestive of Forestier's disease. Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH), or Forestier's disease, is a non-inflammatory disease, with the principal manifestation being calcification and ossification of spinal ligaments and the regions where tendons and ligaments attach to bone (entheses). The exact cause is unknown.
