Fibrous dysplasia is a rare disease of bone where bony tissue is replaced with fibrous tissue.
It is called monostatic if it involves one bone and polyostotic fibrous dysplasia if it involves more than one bone.
Fibrous dysplasia causes abnormal growth or swelling of bone. Bones of the skull, thigh, shin, ribs, upper arm and pelvis are most commonly affected.
Most of the cases of fibroud dysplasia are monostotic. Males and females of any race are equally affected.
Severe form of polyostotic fibrous dysplasia is known as McCune-Albright syndrome which consists of endocrine disease and skin pigmentation
