Fibrous Dysplasia

What Is Fibrous Dysplasia? Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a skeletal disorder in which bone-forming cells fail to mature and produce too much fibrous, or connective, tissue. Areas of healthy bone are replaced with this fibrous tissue. The replacement of normal bone in fibrous dysplasia can lead to pain, misshapen bones, and fracture, especially when it occurs in the long bones (arms and legs). When it occurs in the skull, there can also be a replacement of the normal bone with fibrous tissue…

A shepherd's crook deformity refers to a coxa varus angulation of the proximal femur is commonly seen in femoral involvement by fibrous dysplasia.  Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a benign tumour-like congenital process, manifested as a defect in osteoblastic differentiation and maturation, with progressive replacement of normal bone with immature woven bone.

Hey Friends! Did you know that February 29th is Rare Disease Day?  It is! I'm wearing my FD Warrior shirt to raise awareness for the rare bone disease I have called Fibrous Dysplasia.  Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a bone disease characterized by areas of abnormal growth or lesions in one several or many bones. FD can occur in any bone and results in formation of bone that is weak and prone to expansion. As a result most complications result from fracture deformity functional impairment and…

Skull with leontiasis ossea ("Lion face"). This rare condition is symptomatic of several diseases including fibrous dysplasia, Paget's disease, hyperparathyroidism, syphilitic osteoperiostitis and renal osteodystrophy. The condition is characterized by an overgrowth of bone (hyperostosis) in the facial and cranial bones.  www.museocereanatomiche.it/simple.asp?idp=15
