What is Fibrous Dysplasia?

fibrous_dysplasiaFibrous dysplasia is a chronic disorder of the skeleton which causes expansion of one or more bones due to abnormal development of fibrous tissue within the bone. Any bone can be affected, and involvement can be in one or several bones. Though many bones can be affected at once, fibrous dysplasia does not spread from one bone to another. At present there are no approved medical therapies. Surgery is sometimes recommended for severe complications.
