Fibrous dysplasia is a chronic condition of the bone in which abnormal tissue develops in place of a normal bone. Although any bone may be affected, fibrous dysplasia is commonly found in the diaphyses or metaphyses of long bones. Few cases of monostotic fibrous dysplasia involving the epiphysis have been reported.This article presents a rare case of monostotic fibrous dysplasia arising in the epiphysis of the distal femur in a young man.

Case Report:
A 17-year-old man visited our hospital because of an abnormal finding on a simple radiograph of the right knee that was taken in a primary care clinic for constitutional varus knee. The subject reported no pain. Physical examination revealed no tenderness, swelling, effusion, or limitation of motion of the knee. He did not have any history of trauma or medical illnesses.

The MRI showed an eccentric lobulated contoured mass in the lateral femoral condyle, which displayed heterogeneous intermediate signal intensity on a T1-weighted image and heterogeneous high signal intensity on a T2-weighted image. The lesion showed strong gadolinium enhancement.Curettage and autogenous bone graft were performed through a cortical fenestration to prevent collapse of the articular surface...
