Abstract:   (1216 Views)

Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is an osseous growth dis-order, producing immature bone and characte-rized by the replacement of normal bone with fibro-osseous connective tissue. It is a bone dys-plasia that has the potential to cause significant cosmetic and functional disturbances, particularly in the craniofacial skeleton. Cra-niofacial fibrous dysplasia is one of the three types of polyostotic fibrous dysplasia that can affect the bones of the craniofacial complex. In this article, we report a case of craniofacial FD which caused hemifacial swelling and orbital asymmetry with no significant neurological symptoms including visual disturbances.

Keywords: Polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, Craniofacial, abnormality, Dental, radiography
