Craniofacial fibrous dysplasia: A case report and literature review

Ilson Sepúlveda, M Loreto Spencer, Paulo Flores, Joaquin Ulloa


Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a rare osseous pathology of unknown origin in which normal bone is replaced by fibro-osseous tissue.

FD represents 3% of all bony tumors and over 7% of all non-malignant bone tumors. FD has various clinical presentation groups such as the monostotic, craniofacial and polyostotic forms, and the McCune-Albright syndrome.
