Fibrous dysplasia of the femoral neck is difficult to treat. In a series
of fifteen young patients, ten had a monostotic lesion and five, the
polyostotic form of the disease. Twelve patients were first seen with a
fatigue fracture. Grafts of cortical bone were used. The objectives of
relief of pain, union of the fracture, and prevention of deformity were
achieved in all fifteen patients. Two patients required a repeat procedure.
None of the patients had important deformity of the femoral neck, and none
needed an osteotomy.
