Abstract
ANTERIOR LONGITUDINAL LIGAMENT OSSIFICATION/CALCIFICATION IN LUMBAR REGION – A CASE REPORT

T. Ramesh Rao and Suresh R. Rao*

ABSTRACT

Anterior longitudinal ligament ossification or calcification is normally asymptomatic and has not been widely disseminated. Any ossification or calcification of the spinal ligaments have been considered as a part of diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis, previously known as Forestier’s disease. Ossification of the anterior longitudinal ligament rarely leads to neurological complications. In this case report, we observed ossified anterior longitudinal ligament between 2 lumbar vertebrae. Therefore this case report would serve as ray of light for knowing the possible anatomical variations associated with the ossification of spinal ligaments, which will be important to the clinicians in correct diagnosis and treatment of patients suffering spinal problems.

Keywords: ossification, vertebrae, anterior longitudinal ligament, posterior longitudinal ligament.
