Dysphagia is a common complaint of patients seen by otolaryngologists. Cervical osteophytes have been widely reported as a cause of dysphagia. Recently, Forestier’s disease (vertebral ankylosing hyperostosis or diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis) has also been identified as a cause of dysphagia. We studied a patient suffering dysphagia due to Forestier’s disease and with a problem of differential diagnosis of the neoplastic pathology of the head and neck.
