VENTURA-MARTINEZ, Natalia et al. Advanced craniofacial fibrous dysplasia: case report. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2014, vol.36, n.1, pp.32-37. ISSN 2173-9161.

Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a benign fibro-osseous disease where normal bone is replaced by an excessive proliferation of fibrous connective tissue with irregular trabecular bone. Craniofacial involvement is uncommon and is not well defined. The most commonly involved bones in the craniofacial area are the mandible body and the posterior maxilla. The authors describe the complete management and functional rehabilitation of a case of advanced fibrous dysplasia of the mandible, and provide an updated review of the therapeutic options for this condition.

Keywords : Fibrous dysplasia; Craniofacial; Mandible; Microsurgery; Reconstructive surgery.
