Fibrous dysplasia is a rare benign bone disorder characterized by the replacement of normal bone with fibrous tissue, often leading to bone deformities and functional impairment. Fibrous dysplasia of the nasal turbinates is an uncommon presentation, and its management poses challenges due to its impact on nasal airflow and function. Here, we present a case report of fibrous dysplasia involving the lower turbinate in a 30-year-old male patient. We discuss the clinical presentation, radiological findings, histopathological examination, and management approach, highlighting the importance of a detailed approach in the management of the obstruction of nasal cavity.
