What is FOP?
FOP is a rare genetic condition that causes bone to form in connective tissues, including muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This process, known as heterotopic ossification, can make movement extremely limited or impossible as the joints become locked in place, including the jaw.
FOP is often characterized by bone growth that restricts movement over time. Patients also experience flare-ups that may be triggered by illness or trauma to the muscle. It is typically diagnosed in children between 2 and 5 years of age.
