PERLAZA, Néstor Alonso. Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis of Cervical Column: a Clinical Anatomy and Functional Approach. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2012, vol.30, n.2, pp. 499-503. ISSN 0717-9502. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022012000200023.
Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis is a condition of unknown cause, characterized by calcification and ossification of entheseal sites, which generally causes ankylosis of the spinal column and ossification of the extra-spinal ligaments or tendons. The case reported is from the cervical region of the spinal column of skeletal remains. Knowledge of the multiple clinical and functional implications analyzed is of great importance when approaching patients with said manifestations.
