Fibrous dysplasia

  • Swelling 
  • Bone deformity 
  • Bone fractures (Particularly in arms or legs)
  • Bone pain 
  • Curvature of leg bones 
Tests to diagnose: 

The most commonly used diagnostic tool is an X-ray.

Some additional tests include:

  • MRI
  • Bone scan 
  • Biopsy

Medications: Bisphosphonates help prevent bone loss by decreasing the activity of cells that normally dissolve bone. These bisphosphonates may even strengthen the affected bones.

Surgery: This may involve removing the bone lesion and replacing it with a bone graft.
