Abstract

 

Fibrous dysplasia is a fibro-osseous disorder, causing a disorganized structure of the bone. It affects mostly the flat bones, such as the bones of the skull and facial skeleton, pelvic girdle, and tibia, but the primary involvement of the nasal turbinate itself is rare. To the best of our knowledge, only 5 such cases have been reported in the English literature to date, and we aim to present 1 more case of monostatic fibrous dysplasia of the right middle turbinate (MT), highlighting the need for a more conservative transnasal endoscopic surgical paring-down approach to reduce the surgical morbidity.
