What is Ollier disease?

Also known as: dyschondroplasia

Ollier disease is a disorder in which benign (noncancerous) growths of cartilage grow in the bones and ultimately lead to bone deformities, shortened limbs and fractures. Though present at birth, Ollier disease typically doesn’t become evident until around age 5.
