Radiologic studies are essential in diagnosing Forestier's disease and include lateral cervical spine roentgenograms, thoracic and lumbosacral vertebrae roentgenograms, esophagram, vertebrae roentgenograms, esophagram, and computed tomography. Patients with Forestier's disease may be considered to be operative candidates if they have persistent dysphagia, dysphonia, and a feeling of fullness or foreign body in the throat. The patient in our case report underwent anterior surgical resection of her anterior cervical osteophytes. Two months following surgery, she was no longer experiencing dysphagia or dyspnea.
