Osteofibrous dysplasia is an uncommon benign fibro-osseous lesion of childhood, more often seen in maxilla and mandible. Among a long bone, it is usually encountered in the tibia as a painless swelling or anterior bowing. Osteofibrous dysplasia mimicking exostoses has never been reported in the literature, to the best of our knowledge. Here, we would like to present an unusual case of osteofibrous dysplasia of the tibia clinically mimicking exostoses.
