Abstract

We present a case of pseudarthrosis in a patient suffering from polyostotic fibrous dysplasia of the right part of the body that was successfully treated with bone morphogenetic protein. Pseudarthrosis occurred after proximal femoral shaft fracture due to a motorcycle accident initially treated by intramedullary nailing. After revision, the patient was treated by pseudarthrosis debridement and grafting of bone morphogenetic protein-7/osteogenic protein-1, resulting in callus formation that allowed indolent full weight-bearing after 6 weeks. The underlying disease as well as the described treatment is discussed.
