ABSTRACT Introdução: A Displasia Fibrosa é uma doença benigna do osso, de crescimento lento e etiologia desconhecida. O envolvimento do esqueleto craniofacial não é incomum e, geralmente, produz assimetrias faciais. Relato do Caso: Neste artigo relatamos o caso de um paciente com displasia fibrosa ocupando todo o seio maxilar esquerdo com extensão orbitária confirmado pelo anatomopatológico. Comentários Finais: O tratamento cirúrgico permanece como principal abordagem terapêutica e o seguimento pós-cirúrgico faz-se necessário pelo caráter recidivante desta condição.

    ABSTRACT: This article describes clinical follow-up of 15 patients—13 females and two males—with McCune-Albright syndrome. Osseous fractures occurred only during childhood, while hearing impairment due to temporal bone involvement occurred in four of six adults. Four females with precocious puberty had final heights that were not different from the mean for normal females; they eventually developed regular menses, and two had children. Persistent hyperthyroidism requiring ablative therapy occurred in three subjects, while hypophosphatemia occurred in three subjects. The protean manifestations of this disorder suggest that it results from a basic defect of cellular regulation. We postulate that its varied endocrine abnormalities result from altered regulation of intracellular cyclic adenosine monophosphate effects.(JAMA 1986;256:2980-2984)

    ABSTRACT: To gain a broader appreciation of the clinical presentation, operative treatment, and outcome of patients with fibrous dysplasia involving the skull base. Retrospective review of a clinical case series. A single tertiary academic medical center. Twenty-one patients with histopathologically confirmed fibrous dysplasia involving the skull base cared for over a 15-year-period (1983-1998). Clinical and radiographic location of the fibrous dysplasia lesions within the skull base, clinical presentation, surgical intervention, and clinical outcome were tabulated for each patient. The ethmoids were most commonly involved (71%), followed by the sphenoid (43%), frontal (33%), maxilla (29%), temporal (24%), parietal (14%), and occipital (5%) bones. The most common presenting features included atypical facial pain and headache, complaints referable to the sinuses, proptosis and diplopia, hearing loss, and facial numbness. Surgical treatment, guided by clinical presentation, ranged from simple biopsy with conservative follow-up to craniofacial resection. Fibrous dysplasia can present in myriad ways within the skull base. Modern imaging modalities and histopathologic analysis have made diagnosis relatively straightforward. Surgery, particularly in such a challenging region as the skull base, should be reserved for patients with functional impairment or a cosmetic deformity. Because of the benign nature of the condition, the surgery itself should be relatively conservative, with the primary goal being preservation of existing function.

    ABSTRACT: we present the case of a localized monostotic fibrous dysplasia in the frontal sinus with orbital extension and persistency after the first surgery; it had to be operated again with a fronto-orbitary reconstruction. the fibrous dysplasia is a rare bony alteration with transformation of the healthy bony tissue for a disestructuredone. its etiology is unknown and can be associated to different syndromes, such as albright´s disease. its treatment is surgical, but presents a high percentage of recurrence, this is the xenson why it needs a close follow up
