Abstract

Polyostotic fibrous dysplasia is a rare benign asymptomatic tumour of the ribs not requiring surgery on most occasions. We present here a case with left 10th and 11th rib fibrous dysplasia which was causing a hinderance to the Urologist for renal stone extraction. Therefore the 10th and 11th ribs
were excised followed by chest wall reconstruction.
