Does anyone out there have multiple non ossifying fibromas in their body or know of someone that does? Have they caused you to have multiple pathological fractures? My son has broke both his Left and Right Femurs due to pathological fractures from NOF's. He has two more NOF"s they found in is right and left femur up towards the head. They are almost symmetrical placed of both side. Same with the brakes of the femur from the ones they aren't removed. His Pediatric Orthopedic said he has never had a case like this where a patient has multiple NOF's or one that has had two pathological fractures due to NOF's without their being an underlining cause or secondary diagnosis to them. Help. Would love to hear any advice or stories.
