Hi, my brother has monostotic fybrous displasia diagnosed two weeks ago, after examinating some swollen tissue on his rib. What are predections in patients with monostotic fybrous displasia?

Monostotic fybrous dysplasia is excessive growth of hard fibrous tissue instead of normal bone tissue in a single bone. It can be detected by pain and fracture of the bone. It is characterized by singular, slow-growing, painless swelling of a bone. Adolescence and young adulthood are ages in which this disease is mostly diagnosed and remains unchanged throughout life. The prognosis is generally speaking very good. Monostotic fybrous dysplasia most frequently affects ribs.
Some cartilaginous bone tumors may, at first be misdiagnosed as rib lesion in this age group. Monostotic fybrous dysplasia can be detected by increased level of serum alkaline phosphatase.
