Fibrous Dysplasia:


Fibrous Dysplasia is a condition of the skeleton (bones). It is a birth defect that is a non-cancerous disease. It is not hereditary so your child did not get it from you nor will he/she pass it along to his/her children. Fibrous Dysplasia gets progressively worse from birth until the bones finish growing. As it progresses, normal bone is replaced by various amounts of structurally weak fibrous and osseous (bone-like) tissue.
