A rare case of monomelic melorheostosis

Author(s): Dr. Ravindra and Dr. Paramesh K
Abstract: Melorheostosis is a rare entity belonging to the group of sclerotic bone dysplasias. Described for the first time in 1922 by Leri, it remains imperfectly known as clinical presentations are highly variable, and the etiological diagnosis is not fully elucidated. Here we present a rare case of melorheostosis of left upper limb involving left ulna and humerus extending to metacarpals and phalanges. In our case the diseases has involved 2 long bones in same extremity diffusely.
