Osteodystrophia fibrosa is important disease in equines, primarily occurs due to excessive feeding of phosphorus rich diet in which Ca : P ratio is 1 : 2.9 or more (Krook and Lowe, 1964).
Overall 6.95% prevalence of osteodystrophia fibrosa in equids of Jammu region, in mules the prevalence was 7.14% while in horses 6.06%.
Oral supplementation of liquid calcium along with vitamin supplementation had been recommended in the treatment of secondary calcium deficiency as occurs in Osteodystrophia fibrosa and withdrawal of phosphorus rich diet such as wheat bran and rice bran which are rich in phosphorus and supplementation of green fodder and wheat straw and concentrate diet (balanced ration) had been found to be effective.
Fibrous dysplasia of the bone (Jaffe-Lichtenstein syndrome, osteodystrophia fibrosa
) was first described by Lichtenstein in 1938.
