Abstract: Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP), a rare and disabling genetic condition characterized by congenital malformations of the great toes and progressive heterotopic endochondral ossification (HEO) which is the most catastrophic of HEO disorders in humans. We hereby report a case of FOP in a 3 year old female child with multiple HEO and genetically confirmed missense variation of exon 6 of the ACVR1 gene.
