Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis is a disease of new bone formation in ligaments, tendons, and joint capsules. It is estimated to affect about 5% of the population above 40 years of age. Large flowing bony growths near vertebrae are typically seen on X-rays. Similar hard bony growths may be palpable near the heel, knee, and elbow. Diabetes, osteoarthritis, and some other diseases may accompany DISH syndrome. Although most patients do not have any symptoms, spinal pain and stiffness can limit movements significantly. The bony growths can compress nerves emerging from the spine, and minor trauma can lead to a spinal fracture. There is no satisfactory therapy for DISH syndrome except pain killers, exercise, and surgery in cases of neurological complications.
