Abstract

Vanishing bone disease (VBD) is a rare bone disorder of unknown etiology. Histologically it is characterized by non-malignant proliferation of epithelial lined vascular and lymphatic channels and increased number of osteoclasts that result in resorption of osseous matrix. Lost bone is replaced by granulation tissue. The clinical presentation of VBD is variable and depends on the site of involvement.
