Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a slow growing benign noninherited disorder in which normal bones are replaced by fibrous tissue and immature woven bones. Here we report a case of 30-year-old female who presented with unilateral proptosis and lagophthalmos without any visual loss; was diagnosed with polyostotic FD. Patient was taken up for surgery. Osseous reconturing was done by shaving of involved facial bones. Postoperatively, there was a decrease in proptosis and lagophthalmos.
