Fibrous dysplasia

Bone overgrowth disease with often unknown cause. The overgrowth of the bone usually becomes apparent during late childhood and progression stops at adulthood. The affected area can be rather limited in size or extensive. Depending on the extent of the affected area and the functional problems it causes, surgical treatment is mostly considered once the progression of the disease has stopped. Drug treatment early on can be on option, which is to be decided by endocrinologists.
