ABSTRACT

Non-ossifying fibroma or fibrous cortical defects are common benign proliferations of fibrous tissue that occur in metaphyseal regions of long bones. Many are asymptomatic and are found incidentally on routine X-rays done for other reasons. We describe a case of fibrous cortical defect of the lower end of the femur with rheumatoid polyarthritis occurring in the same patient.

Key words: Fibrous cortical defect, Rheumatoid arthritis, Bone grafting
