Idiopathic Fibrous Hyperplasia Bone Disease and Disability

Idiopathic fibrous hyperplasia is a chronic (ongoing, long-term) bone disease that is characterized by a portion of your bone that forms abnormally. The place of normal bone is taken and replaced by scar-like (fibrous) tissue. This softer fibrous tissue expands as your bone grows. Your bone becomes weakened as this process takes place. Idiopathic fibrous hyperplasia may result in the bone that is affected becoming deformed. It is then more likely that your affected bone will break (fracture) when this deformity takes place. Idiopathic fibrous hyperplasia is a bone disease that originates before you are born. However, you may not know that you have idiopathic fibrous hyperplasia until childhood, adolescence or adulthood. Idiopathic fibrous hyperplasia is the disease that accounts for about 7% of all bone tumors that are benign. The disease takes place most of the time in your thighbone, upper arm bone, pelvis, shinbone and skull. While this is true, idiopathic fibrous hyperplasia may develop in any bone in your body. Idiopathic fibrous hyperplasia affects only one of your bones in most instances. If this is true, it is called monostotic idiopathic fibrous hyperplasia. If the disease affects two or more of your bones, it is referred to as polystotic fibrous hyperplasia. This may involve several bones all through your skeleton or two of your bones in the same limb. Idiopathic fibrous hyperplasia is a bone disease that affects men and women, equally. It also displays no apparent racial predilection, either. Idiopathic fibrous hyperplasia is the result of a gene mutation (defect) that involves your cells that make bone. However, the cause of this gene defect is not known at this time. What is known is that idiopathic fibrous hyperplasia is not inherited or handed down from parent to child. There is also no dietary or environmental cause of idiopathic fibrous hyperplasia that is known at the present time. This is why the term “idiopathic” is used. Idiopathic refers to an ailment or disorder where the cause is not known and that occurs spontaneously, rather than being associated with or the result of another condition. When idiopathic fibrous hyperplasia is mild, you may experience little or no signs and symptoms with the disease. On the other hand, if the disease is severe, there are several signs and symptoms that may occur. These may include: Are you being troubled by the bone disease idiopathic fibrous hyperplasia.
