Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a benign bone disorder characterized by alteration in bone morphology. Monostotic FD is the commonest variant and affects the craniofacial bones. Raynaud’s phenomenon is recurrent vasospasm of the fingers and toes due to cold exposure. The disease is usually idiopathic or secondary to connective tissue disorders. Raynaud’s phenomenon is not described previously with FD. We recently encountered two interesting patients of craniofacial monostotic FD with Raynaud’s phenomenon and report the same in this report.

Keywords: Bisphosphonates, craniofacial dysplasia, monostotic fibrous dysplasia, Raynaud′s phenomenon.
