Fibrous Dysplasia: Osteosarcoma

  • Hrvoje VavroEmail author


Skull deformity, predominantly frontal, has been something that this 62-year-old lady has lived with since childhood. A diagnosis of craniofacial fibrous dysplasia was established by the previous X-ray, CT and MRI exams, as well as by bone biopsy, and the appearances were stable for years. The patient’s personal medical history also included surgery and chemotherapy for breast cancer 12 years ago (Fig. 16.1).
