Italian term or phrase: atrosi intersomatica ed interapofisaria
Last question: I take it this is "intersomatic and xxx arthrosis".

Many thanks in advance.

English translation:degenerative disease of the vertebral bodies and articular processes
Explanation:
I think you need to rephrase.


A livello dei metameri invece si differisce in intersomatica (alterazioni dei corpi vertebrali dovute a disidratazione, degenerazione o schiacciamento dei dischi vertebrali con conseguente sclerosi delle limitanti superiore ed inferiore, sviluppo di osteofiti e riduzione dello spazio intersomatico) e interapofisaria (comparsa di alterazioni artrosiche a carico delle apofisi articolari posteriori).

agree  Joseph Tein: Hi Alex ... I agree with the rephrase. I don't trust the "intersomatic" translation ... I would have used "intervertebral" ... but I like your re-arrangement.

agree  SJLD: or osteoarthritis affecting the intervertebral and facet joints (actually articular processes is correct)
