Fibrous Dysplasia is characterised by slow, progressive replacement of a localised area of bone by an abnormal proliferation of isomorphic fibrous tissue intermixed with poorly formed haphazardly arranged trabeculae of woven bone. The term fibrous dysplasia was introduced by Lichtenstein in 1936.Fibrous Dysplasia is an important lesion affecting the maxillofacial region because it can cause severe deformity and asymmetry. Clinically, Fibrous Dysplasia presents in three forms i.e. Monostotic, Polyostotic and Craniofacial fibrous dysplasia. In this article we present three case reports and highlight the different clinical forms of fibrous dysplasia along with their management.
