Fibrous Dysplasia is a benign fibro-osseous lesion occurring throughout the skeletal system with a predilection for craniofacial bones, long bones, and ribs which develops during bone formation. We report here the case of a exceptional case of huge compressive fibrodysplasia of the left first rib with neuralgia of left member treated by removal surgery.
