The fusion that ankyloses the joints progresses vertically up the spine.[1,2,4,5,7] Initially, the apophyseal joints of the superior and inferior articular surfaces of the lumbar vertebrae are spared due to their constant motion.[2] But as the osteoblastosis progressively infiltrates the annulus fibrosis of each veretebral disk and ossifies it, as well as the surrounding soft-tissue attachments, the articulation of the apophyses is hindered and they, too, fuse.[1,2,4,7] The nucleus pulposis of the disk -- the liquid core surrounded by the annulus fibrosis -- may ossify or it may degenerate into a granulomatous pocket due to loss of vascularization from the surrounding osteoblastosis.
