Fibrous dysplasia is a benign bone lesion demonstrating intramedullary fibro-osseous proliferation occurring on account of modified osteogenesis. Fibrous dysplasia was initially scripted by Lichtenstein and Jaffe in 1942 and chronicled as “Jaffe-Lichtenstein syndrome” [1]. Fibrous dysplasia was also designated as osteitis fibrosa or generalized fibrocystic disease of bone. Fibrous dysplasia can incriminate a singular bone, denominated as monostotic fibrous dysplasia or multiple bones, termed as polyostotic fibrous dysplasia.
