Fibrous dysplasia is a bone disease that manifests usually before the end of the third decade. Fracture occurring after a minor impact is usually on a background of diseased bone. This case illustrates an asymptomatic bone disease that was diagnosed incidentally when there was failure of union of a humeral fracture after 10 weeks of adequate conservative treatment.
