Forestier's disease, also known as diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis(DISH), is a rare condition. It frequently occurs in elderly men, and is mostly asymptomatic. Patients with severe involvement of the cervical spine may, however, develop dysphagia, dysphonia, dyspnea, and foreign body sensation. We decribe that one case of Forestier's disease with dysphagia, successfully treated by surgery, and also present a review the literature.
