Distinctive spinal changes in two patients with unusual forms of autosomal dominant endosteal hyperostosis: a case series.

Al Kaissi A, Varga F, Zandieh S, Klaushofer K, Grill F - J Med Case Rep (2007)

Bottom Line: Endosteal hyperostosis was encountered in a 26-year-old-man and his 6-month-old daughter.Both the father and his daughter presented with fractures.Odontoid process hyperplasia, and progressive sclerosis of the posterior spinal elements, was the other significant features.

ABSTRACT
Endosteal hyperostosis was encountered in a 26-year-old-man and his 6-month-old daughter. Both the father and his daughter presented with fractures. Odontoid process hyperplasia, and progressive sclerosis of the posterior spinal elements, was the other significant features. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first clinical report describing distinctive spinal changes in association with fractures and endosteal hyperostosis.

Figure 8: (patient 2). Coronal reformatted multiplanar computed tomography of the cervical spine, demonstrating the increased density of the transverse processes and the unduly long odontoid process.

Mentions: Sagittal reformatted multiplanar computed tomography demonstrated irregular increased density in the mandibular bone and the increased density of cancellous bone at the inferior borders (figure 7-arrow). Coronal reformatted multiplanar computed tomography of the cervical spine demonstrating the increased density of the transverse processed and the unduly long odontoid process-arrow- (fig 8). Lateral radiograph of the thoracic spine showed progressive sclerosis of the anterior longitudinal ligament with subsequent development of bony ankylosis (arrow-fig 9).
