Gnathodiaphyseal dysplasia is a generalized skeletal syndrome characterized by frequent bone fractures in childhood, sclerosis and bowing of tubular bones, and cemento-osseous lesions of the jawbones. We present the case of a 53-year-old man with gnathodiaphyseal dysplasia who presented with pathological fracture of the tibial shaft. Internal fixation with the Ender nail was successfully performed with 2 years of follow-up.
This is the first report describing the treatment of fracture in an adult patient with gnathodiaphyseal dysplasia. Internal fixation with the Ender nail was effective for the tubular bone with deformity. Callus formation was observed without delay.
