Abstract

Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a benign non neoplastic bone disorder in which fibrous tissue replaces normal bone. It is a genetic non inherited condition caused by mutation in the GNAS1 gene, characterized by abnormal proliferation of fibrous tissue interspersed with normal or immature bone. FD causes esthetic disfigurement and dysfunctions when maxillo-mandibular region is affected. Dental practitioner can be the first to detect such conditions. We hereby report a case of 28 years old male, with a history of swelling of the left side of maxilla since 20 years. Present report highlights the clinical, radiographic and histopathologic features of this condition along with literature review.
