Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a benign fibro-osseous bone disease of unknown etiology and uncertain pathogenesis. When bone maturation is completed, indicating the occurence of stabilization is a strong evidence of mechanism. The lesion frequently affects the craniofacial skeleton. The maxilla is affected twice comparing mandible and occurs more frequently in the posterior area. In this case, a 16 year-old female patient is presented who was diagnosed as having maxillofacial fibrous dysplasia.
