Forestier's disease or diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) is a skeletal pathology characterized by paravertebral osteophyte formation and calcification and ossification of the anterior longitudinal vertebral ligament. It is being increasingly recognized as a cause of dysphagia and rarely leads to obstructive airway symptoms such as snoring, dyspnea on exertion, and laryngeal stridor. We report an unusual case presenting with acute respiratory distress due to obstructing laryngeal edema and bilateral arytenoid sclerosis, with the fixation of left cricoarytenoid joint in association with DISH.
