Fibrous dysplasia is a benign pathologic condition of bone in which fibrous tissue gradually expands and replaces normal bone into fibro-osseous lesion. It is a primary developmental abnormality of bone-forming mesenchyme in origin. This study shows clinical history, radiological and histopathological feature of fibrous dysplasia with the intention of establishing correct diagnosis, treatment plan and evaluation of prognosis. This paper reviews and summarizes the materials from 57 fibrous dysplasias submitted to the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in College of Dentistry, Seoul National University. Conclusions obtained were as following : 1. Fibrous dysplasia developed mainly in teenagers and shows female predeliction. 2. Fibrous dysplasia developed much on the maxilla 3. Monostotic fibrous dysplasia was most popular form. 4. Main symptom of fibrous dysplasia was painless swelling. 5. Radiological feature of fibrous dysplasia was ground-glass appearance, 6. Histopathological feature of fibrous dysplasia was irregular immature bony trabeculae(woven bone). 7. Treatment of fibrous dysplasia was mainly conservative contouring surgery.
