Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis

Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis: Abbreviated as DISH. Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis is a form of degenerative arthritis characteristically associated with flowing calcification along the sides of the vertebrae of the spine and commonly associated with inflammation (tendinitis) and calcification of the tendons at their attachments points to bone. Because areas of the spine and tendons can become inflamed, antiinflammatory medications (NSAIDs) such ibuprofen can be helpful in both relieving pain and inflammation. Also called Forestier's disease.
