 en Case Report-Melorheostosis: Follow-up of a case Compounded with carcinoma prostate
Naik R S, Narang Jayant


A case of melorheostosis, a relatively uncommon congenital condensing bone disease, developed adenocarcinoma of prostate - a relatively slow-growing tumour usually amenable to treatment with good prognosis. The malignancy in this case disseminated unusually fast spelling out the unfavourable prognosis. This patient also had a fracture neck of the femur which unexpected healed very early. We believe that these observations support the notion of the congenital local hypervascularity theory in the aetiology of the disease.
