2

OFD makes up less than 1% of all tumors that originate in bone

It usually develops in people younger than 20 years of age and stabilizes when the bones are no longer growing

Almost all OFD tumors occur in the long middle part of the tibia, with a few, rare reports of occurrences in the fibula

5

OFD is treated with marginal resection with or without bone grafting, depending on the size of the lesion and the extent of bony involvement
