Fibrous dysplasia is a benign fibro-osseous lesion that is characterized by the replacement of bone with fibrous tissue. It predominantly presents as monostotic form involving one bone or polyostotic variant involving multiple bones. At times, extra skeletal features like endocrine abnormalities and hyperpigmented skin lesions are also observed. The confirmatory diagnosis is made through histopathology and surgery is the treatment of choice, but will depend on the duration, extent and severity of the lesion. Here we are presenting a case report on extensive Fibrous dysplasia of the maxilla of 10 years duration in a 17-year-old boy.
