Case Study
The article presents a case study of a sixty-three-year-old woman with a complex deformity of the upper right extremity. In this context, the authors present a new syndrome of heterotopic ossification that involved the right side of the patient. With this, her condition indicated the so-called focal fibronodular heterotopic ossification. Some clinical findings provide a description on several disorders of heterotopic ossification.
