We describe an otherwise normal male neonate who presented shortly after birth with rare congenital osteofibrous dysplasia of the right tibia associated with pseudoarthrosis of the ipsilateral fibula. The lesion was curetted, and the defect was packed with a fibular bone graft from the other leg. Histopathological examination was typical for osteofibrous dysplasia. The ipsilateral fibular pseudoarthrosis was observed with no active intervention. Seven years follow-up showed good functional recovery without recurrence of the lesion. The case is a new presentation of congenital osteofibrous dysplasia, and is presented to draw attention to this rare condition that must be considered in the differential diagnosis of congenital lesions of the tibia.
