Proliferative, reparative, and reactive benign bone lesions that may be confused diagnostically with true osseous neoplasms.

TLDR
This review considers the clinicopathologic features of fibrous dysplasia, benign fibro-osseous lesions of the jawbones, osteofibrous dys plasia, metaphyseal fibrous defect, giant-cell reparative granuloma, "brown tumor" of hyperparathyroidism, synovial chondrometaplasia and polyvinylpyrrolidone storage disease of bone.

MR imaging of the knee: incidental osseous lesions.

Case report 683

Non-ossifying fibromas and fibrous cortical defects around the knee - an epidemiologic survey in a Japanese pediatric population

TLDR
The prevalence of NOF and FCD around the knee was lower than that reported in previous studies and the lesion size was not associated with spontaneous pain in either lesion.

Metaphyseal Fibrous Defect

A benign nonneoplastic bone lesion, composed of fibrous tissue with a whorled pattern, with multinucleated giant cells, hemosiderin pigment and lipid-bearing histiocytes and inflammatory elements. It

Pathological fracture of non-ossifying fibroma associated with neurofibromatosis type 1

TLDR
The management of a pathological fracture through a proximal tibial non-ossifying fibroma (NOF) in a 13-year-old girl with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) was reported, and the lesion had clinical features of a NOF, and therefore biopsy was not required.

Benign Osteolytic Lesions in Children With Previously Normal Radiographs

TLDR
Benign osteolytic lesions such as aneurysmal bone cysts and nonossifying fibromas can arise in a short time period.

Surgical treatment for symptomatic non-ossifying fibromas of the lower extremity with calcium sulfate grafts in skeletally immature patients

TLDR
CaSPs offer a safe, cheap, convenient alternative to the autograft as an implant substitute that helps regeneration of bone in the defects produced by curettage of large, symptomatic NOFs.
