Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva FOP is a severely disabling heritable disorder of connective tissue characterized by congenital malformations of the great toes and progressive heterotopic ossification fibrodisplasoa forms qualitatively normal bone in characteristic extraskeletal sites.

Statistics

There is no ethnic, racial, gender, or geographic predilection to FOP. During the first decade of life, sporadic episodes of painful soft tissue swellings flare-ups occur which cibrodisplasia often precipitated by soft tissue injury, intramuscular injections, viral infection, muscular stretching, falls or fatigue. If diagnosis of FOP is suspected, any invasive intervention such as biopsywhich may lead to flare-ups, is contraindicated.

These flare-ups transform skeletal muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and aponeuroses into heterotopic bone, rendering movement impossible. Patients with atypical forms of FOP have been described.

They either present with the classic features of FOP plus one or more atypical features e.

The diagnosis of FOP is made figrodisplasia clinical evaluation. Plain radiographs can substantiate more subtle great toe abnormalities and the presence of heterotopic ossification. Confirmatory genetic testing is available.

Differential diagnosis includes progressive osseous heteroplasia, osteosarcoma, lymphedema, soft tissue sarcoma, desmoid tumors see these termsaggressive juvenile fibromatosis, and non-hereditary acquired heterotopic ossification.

Although most cases of FOP are sporadic non-inherited mutationsa small number of inherited FOP cases show germline transmission with an autosomal dominant pattern. At present, there is no definitive treatment, but a brief 4-day course of high-dose corticosteroids, started within the first 24 hours of a flare-up, may help reduce the intense inflammation and tissue edema seen in the early stages of the disease.

Preventative management is based on prophylactic measures against falls e. The median lifespan is approximately 40 years of age. Most patients are wheelchair-bound by the end of the second decade of life and commonly die of complications of thoracic insufficiency syndrome.
