Fibrous Dysplasia, Osteogenesis Imperfecta and X-linked Hypophosphataemia are rare conditions which affect the bones.

At the moment we do not know much about the best way to diagnose and treat adults with these conditions. Research is also more difficult because relatively few people are affected and due to the rarity, resources for research often get allocated to larger groups of patients.

The Rare Musculoskeletal Disease in Adulthood PSP published its Top 10 in November 2018.
