Abstract

Fibrous dysplasia is a developmental disease of bone in which the normal substance of the interior of the bone is replaced by fibro-osseous connective tissue. It exhibits varying degrees of osseous metaplasia histologically. Craniofacial fibrous dysplasia frequently affects the maxilla, frontal bone, and mandible. The nasal septum is rarely affected. There is only one reported case of fibrous dysplasia arising in the septum internationally. Hence, we report a case of fibrous dysplasia of the nasal septum with a review of literature.
