Fibrous dysplasia is a developmental tumour like condition that is characterised by replacement of normal bone by an excessive proliferation of cellular fibrous connective tissue intermixed with irregular bony trabeculae. Fibrous dysplasia is a sporadic condition that results from a post zygotic mutation in the GNAS I (guanine nucleotide-binding protein, alpha-stimulating activity polypeptide- I) gene. We report a case of fibrous dysplasia of maxilla in a 22 year old female patient.
