RATIONALE: The excessive intake of vitamin A in the form of vitamin concentrate, supplement or vitamin-rich liver can result in hypervitaminosis A in man and animals. Although osteopathologies resulting from chronic vitamin A intoxication in cats are well characterized, no information is available concerning feline hypervitaminosis A-induced liver disease. CLINICAL SUMMARY: We report the first case of hepatic stellate cell lipidosis and hepatic fibrosis in a domestic cat that had been fed a diet based on raw beef liver...

INTRODUCTION: An axial symptom is one of the postoperative problems after cervical laminoplasty. The range of motion (ROM) of the cervical spine decreases after laminoplasty. It is speculated that the reduction in neck ROM is one of the causes of axial symptoms. However, most reports have focused on ROM of the cervical spine in flexion and extension, and few papers describe the rotational motion after surgery. It is impossible to assess the rotational motion in plain X-rays. This study was undertaken for the following two purposes: (1) to compare segmental rotational angles of the cervical spine between control subjects and patients with cervical laminoplasty ; (2) to analyze the relationship between postoperative axial symptoms and the range of cervical rotational angle after laminoplasty...

HISTORY AND ADMISSION FINDINGS: An 83-year-old patient with Parkinson's disease was referred because of pain in the thoracolumbar spine, increasing kyphosis and gait disturbance. Clinically, the main anomaly was a marked hyperkyphosis of the spine during standing and sitting which regressed while recumbent. INVESTIGATIONS: Radiologically, spondylosis, osteochondrosis, and facet joint arthrosis demonstrated marked degeneration of the spine (diffuse skeletal hyperostosis, DISH)...

Spondylosis deformans and diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) are usually incidental findings and in most dogs are either asymptomatic or associated with mild clinical signs. Severe spondylosis deformans and DISH can result in complete bony fusion of consecutive vertebral segments. One of the recognised complications following vertebral fusion in human patients is the development of adjacent segment disease, which is defined as degenerative changes, most commonly degenerative intervertebral disc disease, in the mobile vertebral segment neighboring a region of complete vertebral fusion...

STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective review of 10 consecutive patients with a noninflammatory retro-odontoid pseudotumor. OBJECTIVE: To examine the radiographic characteristics in patients with a retro-odontoid pseudotumor and to evaluate the efficacy of posterior fusion. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: A retro-odontoid pseudotumor, a reactive fibrocartilaginous mass, is known to develop after chronic atlantoaxial instability; however, one-third of the reported cases showed no overt atlantoaxial instability...

AIM: To conduct a pilot study investigating the incidence and pathology of spondylosis in a sample of cull rams in New Zealand. METHODS: Vertebral columns from 51 cull rams from different properties were assessed radiographically for evidence of spondylosis. They were graded according to severity, using a four-point grading system. Samples of intervertebral discs representing different grades of spondylosis were examined histopathologically. RESULTS: Forty (78%) rams had spondylosis in at least one intervertebral space...

In 1970 there was a conservation of Goethe's skeleton, housed in the Fürstengruft in Weimar. This procedure was kept secret until 1999. The restoration of the sarcophagus and the conservation of the skeleton have been documented together with many photos in the so-called "Sonderakte Mazeration Goethe" (special file mazeration Goethe). In this special file there are also photos of Goethe's skull and skeleton which will be published here for the first time and analysed under anthropological and palaeopathological aspects...

Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) is a common disorder of unknown etiology that is characterized by back pain and spinal stiffness. There may be mild pain if ankylosis has occurred. The condition is recognized radiographically by the presence of "flowing" ossification along the anterolateral margins of at least four contiguous vertebrae and the absence of changes of spondyloarthropathy or degenerative spondylosis. Even in patients who present with either lumbar or cervical complaints, radiographic findings are almost universally seen on the right side of the thoracic spine...

Alkaptonuria is a rare genetic disorder caused by deficiency of the enzyme homogentisic acid oxidase, resulting in accumulation of homogentisic acid in various body tissue; it produces a multisystemic disorder with a characteristic bluish-black discolouration of the skin and cartilage, termed ochranosis. Ochranosis primarily involves the large joints of the body including the spine. Spinal involvement produces loss of flexibility and ankylosis of the thoracic and lumbar segments. The clinical presentation with spondylosis and canal stenosis is common after the third and fourth decades, but intervertebral disc prolapse is unusual in ochranosis...

Long-term follow-up radiographs of patients with anterior cervical fusions demonstrated progressive cervical spondylosis and osteophytes at levels above and below the fusion. The findings may represent a response to altered stresses imposed by the surgery.

In two healthy and two diseased whitefish (Coregonus Wartmanni) taken from Lake Constance (FRG), ankylosis of the vertebral column was investigated both roentgenologically and histologically. Subsequent to the collapse and necrosis of the "residual" spinal cord within the intervertebral spaces, the outside edges of the vertebral bodies come into direct contact. The compression and tensile forces that occur to an increased extent as a result of the instability, lead not only to a remodelling of the vertebral bodies, but also to the formation of spondylotic osteophytes at the edges of the vertebrae and, as a result of periosteal stimulation, to the development of cellular hyaline cartilage, which fills the intervertebral spaces...

Spondylosis hyperostotica is described by means of a case report. It may cause dysphagia by massive ventral exostoses of the cervical spine. Therapeutic aspects are discussed.
