Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is a rare, severely disabling, autosomal dominant disease characterized by recurrent painful episodes of soft tissue swelling and the development of tumors in subcutis and muscle tissue. These lesions lead to heterotopic ossification, that is, true bone tissue formation in the axial musculature, the. - FIBRODYSPLASIA OSSIFICANS PROGRESSIVA; FOP To ensure long-term funding for the OMIM project, we have diversified our revenue stream.
