A 19-year-old woman with a history of chronic left lower extremity pain had exacerbation of her symptoms in the last 6 months. The pain was aggravated by walking and responded partially to anti-inflammatory drugs. The patient had a history of precocious puberty when she was 8 years old, but had no skin pigmentation. A bone scan showed extensive, irregular increased activity in the left hemipelvis, femur and tibia, but also in other sites that were not suspected clinically. Plain radiographs of the left hip, left femur, and left tibia were consistent with fibrous dysplasia.
