Fibrous Dysplasia

Common Name(s)

Fibrous Dysplasia

Fibrous dysplasia is a progressive bone disorder that is characterized by the replacement of normal bone with weaker tissues, such as fibrous tissue and woven bone.  It may involve one bone (monostotic) or multiple bones (polyostotic).   Though many individuals with this condition do not have any symptoms, others may have bone pain, abnormally shaped bones, or an increased risk of breaking bones.   This condition can occur alone or as part of a genetic disorder, such as McCune-Albright syndrome.

The value of Tc-methylene diphosphonate single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography in diagnosis of fibrous dysplasia.
 

Author(s): Linqi Zhang, Qiao He, Wei Li, Rusen Zhang

Journal:

 

Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a rare benign bone disorder in which the normal bone is replaced by immature fibro-osseous tissue. However, some case reports have reported that FD showed significantly increased Tc-methylene diphosphonate (Tc-MDP) uptake on whole-body bone scintigraphy (WBS), ...
