Osteofibrous dysplasia of the ulna.

Author information

  • 1Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust, Stanmore, Middlesex, England.


Osteofibrous dysplasia is a rare condition usually ffecting the tibiae and fibulae of males in the first two decades of life. Involvement at the ulna has also been reported in some cases. We describe an extensive, rapidly progressive lesion of the ulna in a three-year-old girl. The progression of the disease accelerated after a local marginal removal, and required extensive resection of the ulna with reconstruction using a fibular autograft. The particular features of this case are the change in the aggressive nature of the condition, which has not been previously reported. We believe that this is only the second recorded case of histologically proven involvement of the ulna.
