Myositis ossificans progressiva/fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (MOP), is an autosomal dominant mesodermal tissue disorder, characterized by an initial period of inflammation and subsequent proliferation of fibrous tissue with the formation of ectopic bone tissue. The incidence of MOP is one case per two million people. The ectopic bone tissue formed is located in soft tissue mainly in the connective tissue of striated musculature. We report MOP in an 18-year old female who presented with multiple tender, hard swelling in various parts of the body associated with stiffness and limitations of movements. A literature review of the subject showed few similar case reports in the literature. We revisit the criteria for diagnosis and the essentials of management and treatment of MOP as it is rare being a rare condition, and treatment guidelines are not clear.
