• The cause of fibrous dysplasia of the bone is obscure. We reviewed the available literature concerning temporal bone involvement and analyzed the most common aspects of this fascinating disease, adding three cases of our own. A clinical staging is proposed: stage 1, latent; stage 2, symptomatic; and stage 3, complication. Clinical evolution and follow-up are described and treatment is suggested.
