The 72-year-old patient had a history of diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis and mid-laparotomy cholecystectomy 30 years before. The patient reported rigidity along the midline that prevented flexion of the trunk. Computed tomography scan showed bone growth from the xiphoid process to 4 cm above the navel (Fig. 1). There is no cure for this disease, but symptoms can be alleviated. Therefore, we performed a surgical procedure to resect the bone structure, measuring 17 cm × 4 cm (Fig. 2). The pathology study reported mature bone tissue, and there was no recurrence after 6 months of follow-up.
