NASER G, Alfredo; BRAVO C, Gustavo; CARRASCO D, María I  y  RIOS D, Carlos. Fibrous displasia of temporal bone: Clinical case. Rev. Otorrinolaringol. Cir. Cabeza Cuello [online]. 2009, vol.69, n.3, pp.259-264. ISSN 0718-4816.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48162009000300009.

Fibrous dysplasia is a disease characterized by progressive replacement of normal bone by fibrous tissue. It is a benign disorder, rare, of unknown etiology. By its way of presentation can be classified into: monostotic, affecting a bone polyostotic, affecting several bones and polyostotic associated with endocrinopathies. Although the craniofacial skeleton is frequently involved, the temporal bone rarely becomes affected. The most common symptom is hearing loss and the diagnosis is based on radiological images and histopathology When dysplasia presents complications, surgery is recommended. Monitoring of these patients is necessary for early diagnosis of recurrence. In this article we report a case of fibrous temporal bone dysplasia and review the clinical implications and management.

Palabras clave : Fibrous dysplasia; temporal bone; otitis media with effusion; differential diagnosis.
