SANTOS, Josiane Nascimento dos et al. Fibrous dysplasia: osteoplasty using the Weber-Ferguson approach. a case report. Rev. cir. traumatol. buco-maxilo-fac. [online]. 2010, vol.10, n.1, pp. 73-80. ISSN 1808-5210.

Bone dysplasia is described as a benign disorder of bone development, characterized by the replacement of normal bone by an excessive proliferation of fibrous connective tissue. The condition may be present in a sinlge bone (monostotic fibrous dysplasia) or in up to 75% of the entire skeleton (polyostotic fibrous dysplasia). Cutaneous and endocrine changes may be associated with polyostotic dysplasia, characterizing the McCune-Albright syndrome. Diagnosis is based on the history, clinical presentation, radiographic examinations and, when necessary, on histopathological studies. The transformation of fibrous dysplasia into a malignant or sarcomatous lesion is a rare complication. The purpose of the present study is to report the case of polyostotic bone dysplasia in a 40-year-old male patient who was submitted to a osteoplasty using the Weber-Fergsun approach.
