Ollier Disease

Ollier Disease


Ollier disease is a rare sporadic nonhereditary skeletal disorder in which typically benign cartilaginous tumors develop near the growth plate cartilage.


Key signs of the disorder include asymmetry and shortening of the limb as well as an increased thickness of the bone margin. These symptoms are typically first visible during early childhood with the mean age of diagnosis being 13 years of age.


It is believed to be caused by a mutation in the genes IDH1 and IDH2 .
