    Notes: Abstract A 15-year-old boy with achalasia of the oesophagus is described in whom growth retardation was the presenting and misleading symptom. Growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor-I secretion were decreased but GH therapy was unsuccessful. After pneumatic dilatation of the oesophageal sphincter catch up growth occurred.

    Notes: Abstract Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH), or ankylosing hyperostosis (“Forestier’s disease”), is an ossifying diathesis of unknown etiology. Diagnosis is primarily radiologic: osseous bridging of at least four contiguous vertebral bodies, a radiolucent line between the deposited bone and the anterior vertebral surface, large osteophytes and preservation of disk height especially in the cervical and lumbar spine. Although DISH is found in 6–12% of autopsy cases, clinical features are rare and consist primarily of swallowing disorders. A case of DISH is reported in which excessively enlarged cervical osteophytes led to edema of the laryngeal inlet and consequent severe dyspnea, necessitating emergency tracheotomy. Surgical excision of the osteophytic masses resulted in relief of symptoms. Symptomatology, radiographic features and individual treatments are discussed, with the latter dependent on clinical symptoms.
