Polyostotic fibrous dysplasia shares characteristics with several other diseases. Syndrome characterized by osteitis fibrosa disseminata, areas mcucne pigmentation and endocrine dysfunction, with precocious puberty in females: This syndrome is distinct, unlike all other endocrinopathies of MAS, which are slowly progressive and persistent without treatment. McCune-Albright syndrome MAS in its classic form consists of at least 2 of the following triad of features [ 789 ]:.

They often are located close to FD lesions but typically remain separate from them.

There was no skin pigmentation and no sexual precocity. Although we are presenting just one case, analyzing our experience with the data in literature, we believe that in patients with MAS and acromegaly that cannot be surgically approached adequately and in those who do not ce important optic nerve compression, drug therapy based on the association of cabergoline and octreotide might represent a safe and useful treatment option. Permanent effect on growth potential is sinrdome possible.


Base of the skull computed tomography scan showing extensive fibrous dysplasia in McCune-Albright syndrome. Although not quantitatively examined, pamidronate appeared to be effective in reducing bone pain. No important side effects were observed.

McCune–Albright syndrome – Wikipedia

A chest x-ray at age 27 years after minor trauma identified a single lesion of fibrous dysplasia in the left seventh rib. No precisely similar case was known. This website also contains material copyrighted by 3rd parties. Thyrotoxicosis subsequently developed, and the patient had a number of pathologic fractures of both femurs through albrighr lesions and had marked spinal deformity.

In fibrous dysplasia lesions, CT imaging is of paramount importance to demonstrate the granular texture of the lesional tissue and to determine the extension of the lesion in the craniofacial skeleton.

Albright’s syndrome with rickets. Reduction of height potential depends on the degree of bone age advancement that occurs during the periods of early estrogen exposure. Early recognition is vital.

McCune–Albright syndrome

Hypophosphatemia causes rickets and short stature; the pathophysiology of hypophosphatemic rickets, as well as the need for long-term therapy with calcitriol and phosphorus supplementation in these cases, increases the risk of nephrocalcinosis and loss of renal function over time.

CT scans show an image of granular albrgiht delimited by a sclerotic bone. Arch Med Res ; While MAS patients with hypophosphatemic rickets are typically managed with calcitriol and phosphorus supplements, they must be monitored closely for hypercalcemia, excessive hypercalciuria, nephrocalcinosis, and progressive loss of renal function, as well as the development of secondary hyperparathyroidism. Their report provided evidence for persistent autonomous unilateral ovarian dysfunction during early adulthood in McCune-Albright syndrome not compatible with normal fertility.
