Piecing Together the Puzzle of a Rare-Among-Rare Bone Disorder

ShoreKaplanPOHscanNEJMpaper.jpg

About 850 people worldwide have been diagnosed with FOP in the last five decades. Contrast that to the fewer than 100 individuals with POH who have been identified around the world. POH is usually first noticed in babies with the appearance of small “rice-grain” particles of bone under the skin. The bone continues to grow deeper in the first layer of fat next to skin cells and progresses deeper into connective tissue such as skeletal muscle and joints.
