Cranial and vertebral hyperostosis

K Bossens, S Bhatti, I Van Soens, I Gielen, L Van Ham
A nine-year-old intact female domestic shorthair cat was evaluated for paraparesis, ataxia and severe spinal hyperaesthesia. Neurological examination indicated a T3-L3 spinal cord segment lesion. Computed tomography of the thoracolumbar and lumbosacral vertebral column was performed. This showed contiguous smooth new bone formation ventral and lateral to the vertebrae extending from the cranial thoracic area to the lumbosacral junction and appearing similar to canine diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis...

BACKGROUND: Hunter disease is a rare X-linked mucopolysaccharidosis. Despite frequent neurological involvement, characterizing the severe phenotype, neuroimaging studies are scarce. OBJECTIVES: To determine frequency and severity of neuroradiological mucopolysaccharidosis-related features; to correlate them with clinical phenotype; to evaluate their natural evolution and the impact of intravenous enzymatic replacement therapy (ERT). METHODS: Sixty nine brain MRI examinations of 36 Italian patients (mean-age 10...

Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) is a systemic condition leading to ossification of spinal ligaments and has been shown to behave similarly to ankylosing spondylitis (AS) often leading to unstable hyperextension fractures. Currently, no quantitative data are available on the spatial relationship between the bridging anterolateral ossification mass (ALOM) and the vertebral body/intervertebral disc to explain the propensity in DISH to fracture through the vertebral body instead of through the intervertebral disc as more often seen in AS...

Osteoscleroses are a heterogeneous group of bone remodeling disorders characterized by an increase in bone density. Here we report on a consanguineous Lebanese family in which two sisters, aged 39 and 36 years, exhibit a severe genu varum, a square-face appearance, high forehead, slight proptosis of the eyes, symmetric enlargement of the jaw, protruding chin, and short stature. Bone X-rays showed the presence of hyperostosis of the cranial base and vault with increased density of the orbits, hyperostosis of the bones, thickening of the cortices, diaphyseal modeling defects, cortical thickening of the medullary cavity, mild enlargement of the medullary cavity of the short long bones, short femoral necks, increased width of the ribs, and narrow interpedicular distances of the lower lumbar spine...

We studied eight affected and four unaffected individuals from a Colombian family with autosomal dominant diffuse high bone density. Affected individuals have normal, proportional height and high serum alkaline phosphatase activity. Radiographically, affected members exhibit generalized, symmetrically diffuse endosteal hyperostosis of the long bones and skull with narrow medullary cavities and loss of the diploë, respectively. There is no periosteal reaction or decreased hematopoiesis. Furthermore, osteosclerosis affects vertebral bodies, ribs, pelvis, mandible, clavicles, and scapulae...

A radiological study of the sacroiliac joints was undertaken in 54 patients (32 males, 22 females) with vertebral ankylosing hyperostosis (VAH) and in 46 control patients (24 males, 22 females) matched for age and sex. The ages ranged from 38 to 90 years. The radiographs were taken in anteroposterior, oblique, and craniocaudal projections. The films were read for cranial, ventral, and caudal capsular ossifications, for ventral and caudal osteophytes, and for bone sclerosis. Cranial and/or ventral capsular ossifications were found in 28 (87...
