Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a rare fibro-osseous lesion in which normal bone is replaced by abnormal fibrous tissue. Although a congenital disorder, a single case report of traumatic etiology had been described in the literature. We report a case of monostotic FD of the parietal calvarium in a 21-year-old female patient who presented to us with a single swelling in the parietal region been noticed after a head injury sustained at the age of 7 years. After imaging investigations, the lesion was excised via craniotomy followed by cranioplasty in the same sitting. The histopathological evidence was suggestive of FD. To the best of our knowledge, this is the second case of a posttraumatic cranial FD and the first case describing the growing mass in the parietal bone secondary to head injury.
