In this paper the alterations of the skeleton of a 42 year old, Bornean Orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus pygmaeus, Linnaeus, 1760) are described. The skeleton showed typical hyperostosis and calcification on the right side of the thoracic vertebrae, consistent with the skeletal disease known in human pathology under the name of Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis (DISH, ankylosing hyperostosis). This disease is well known in man, but to our knowledge this is the first description of a case of…

The extraspinal manifestations of Forestier's disease are described in 21 consecutive cases; diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) is suggested as a more appropriate description of this

Canine Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis

TLDR
The radiographic and necropsy findings in a case of canine diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis are reported, characterized by progressive development of para-articular mineral densities along joint surfaces of the appendicular skeleton and almost complete ossification of the metaplastic cartilage.

Senile Ankylosing Hyperostosis of the Spine *

TLDR
An ankylosing disease of the spine developing in old people, with a painless onset and clinical, pathological, and radiological features distinguishing it from ankyLosing spondylitis is drawn.

Ankylosing hyperostosis. I. Clinical and radiological features.

TLDR
The clinical and radiological features of a series of patients seen at various hospitals in the East End of London are described, including the possible association with acromegaly.

Patterns of paravertebral ossification in the prehistoric saber-toothed cat.

TLDR
The spinal alterations in the saber-toothed cat showed characteristics of three major pathologic processes: trauma, diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis, and inflammatory disease of a type similar to ankylosing spondylitis.

Reactive erosive arthritis in chimpanzees

TLDR
Analysis of chimpanzee skeletal populations revealed a picture indistinguishable from human spondyloarthropathy, and the possibility of a non‐species specific etiology is suggested.

Arthritis of the spondyloarthropathy variety in Callithrix jacchus.

TLDR
Erosive disease in Callithrix was confirmed as spondyloarthropathy on the basis of diagnostic sacroiliac erosions, syndesmophyte formation, and the nature and distribution of the peripheral joint erosion.

Clinical laboratory studies of the gorilla, chimpanzee, and orangutan.

TLDR
Hematologic, chemical, and serologic studies were undertaken, and the results of these studies are described.
