Fibrous dysplasia is marked by replacement of normal bone by excessively proliferated fibrous connective tissue interspersed with irregular immature bony trabeculae and woven bone and osteoid. Bone development ceases in woven bone stage so matured lamellar bone cannot be formed. It is a congenital dysplastic disease of bone that may occur in a single bone or multiple bones. Here we are presenting a case report of a 36-year-old female with monostotic fibrous dysplasia in maxilla.
