Health News: Fibrous dysplasia



๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“šFibrous dysplasia is a noninherited developmental anomaly  that causes tissue to be replaced by bone.
.
๐Ÿš‘Patients with small, monostotic lesions may be asymptomatic, however, bone pain, swelling, and tenderness are common presentations in symptomatic patients. Endocrine disturbances may be the initial presentation in other patients.
.
๐Ÿ“’๐Ÿ“˜Polyostotic  fibrous dysplasia  (involving or relating to many bones ) fibrous dysplasia can occur as a part of McCune-Albright syndrome (unilateral polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, ipsilateral cafรฉ-au-lait spots on the skin, and endocrine disturbances such as precocious puberty) or Mazabraud syndrome (polyostotic fibrous dysplasia and soft-tissue myxomas).
.
๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“ŒThe most common sites of skeletal involvement are the ribs, proximal femur, and craniofacial bones, typically the posterior maxilla. The lesion may involve only a small segment of bone or it may occupy its entire length.
.
๐Ÿ’Š๐Ÿ’‰Although the manifestations of the polyostotic form may be severe, it does not proliferate and generally becomes  dormant at puberty.
.
Emanuel is scheduled to undergo his first lifesaving surgery at Holtz Children's Hospital in January.
IKF Wonderfund, a Jackson Health Foundation program that helps critically ill children from countries around the world gain immediate access to lifesaving or life-changing medical treatments, took Emanuel's case.
