  Download in pdf format   Extended summary: McCune-Albright syndrome (MAS) is a rare congenital, non-hereditary benign disease caused by a somatic activating mutation, which occurs after the formation of the zygote in the gene that encodes the alpha subunit of the stimulatory G protein (Gs) on chromosome 20q13 and is characterized by the triad: osteofibrose dysplasia, “cafe-au-lait” skin pigmentation and various types of endocrinopathies. We report a case of this rare disease, diagnosed in a woman in the fifth decade of life, in which changes in the bones were accidentally discovered at chest radiography as part of the medical examination to obtain a medical certificate for the employment.
Keywords: Mc Cune-Albright syndrome, osteofibrous dysplasia, autonomous hyperthyroidism
