Background: fibrous dysplasia is a benign developmental abnormality of bone formation characterised by proliferation of spindle cells in bone and stroma. It can occur either in metaphysis or diaphysis and generally does not involve the epiphysis. If the lesion affects a single bone it is termed as monostotic and if it involves multiple bones it is termed as polyostotic. Here we present the case of a 17 year old female presenting with polyostotic fibrous dysplasia in bilateral femur and iliac bones with pathological fracture managed by intramedullary nail fixation.
