We present five patients with fibrous dysplasia: Two monostotic affecting the maxilla, two craniofacial, and one disseminated. Computed tomography was extremely useful for demonstrating the gross bony changes as well as anatomical detail with preservation of the cranial exit foramina. These findings correlate with the lack of significant neurological deficits. The information obtained on CT may be useful for cosmetic reconstructive surgery and de- bulking procedures.
