Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis (DISH)
Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) is a disorder in which there is bone growth in the ligaments, particularly where they attach to the bones of the spine. You may have no symptoms, or you could have relatively minor spinal stiffness and pain. Over time your spine will stiffen and your vertebrae may fuse together.
