Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva: Two case reports.

Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is a rare and progressively debilitating disorder affecting 1 in 2 million individuals. It is characterized by the progressive ossification of soft tissues into ectopic bone and congenital malformations of the great toes. FOP leads to significant disability and can result in death due to thoracic insufficiency syndrome. These case reports examine the presentation, diagnosis, and management of FOP, highlighting the diagnostic challenges inherent in managing such rare conditions because of their unique clinical features. They underscore the need for increased awareness among healthcare practitioners to ensure early diagnosis and the implementation of effective management strategies.
