We present the case of a 73-year-old patient suffering dysphagia secondary to cervical osteophytosis as the clinical presentation of Forestier-Rotés disease. Although this is a frequent disease, there are few cases of dysphagia secondary to this condition it being the initial symptom exceptional. The diagnostic methodology is commented emphasizing cervical CT scan as well as the therapeutic attitude, suggesting starting with a conservative treatment since surgery is not always successful.
