Fibrous Dysplasia is a non inherited skeletal developmental abnormality, where normal bone is replaced by fibrous tissue and poorly formed area of immature bone. Monostotic lesions are 80% of the cases; and Polyostotic lesions are characteristic component of specific syndromes. It is usually detected in 1st and 2nd decade of life as an incidental finding and can cause occasionally dull aching pain2. The clinical course is variable and depends upon the extent and location of the lesion. Fibrous Dysplasia is the most common benign rib lesion3,4. In this case report, we describe a patient with large progressively increasing in size symptomatic rib tumour diagnosed as benign lesion with biopsy and underwent successful resection surgery.
