Two cases of fibrous dysplasia of the skull are reported. Both patients were young women with acromegaly and were treated with radiotherapy. Progressive pareses of cranial nerves, pain, and a malignant course of the disease were characteristic in both patients, and the diagnosis of osteogenous sarcoma proved in one of them by histological examination. The clinical picture of fibrous dysplasia of the skull and the role of radiotherapy with the risk of development of malignancy is discussed.
