Two cases of Monostotic fibrous dysplasia of the femur who were treated by inter-locking nailing are presented. One of them had a refracture after curettage, bone grafting and Jewett nail-plate fixation, whereas the other had a severe shepherd’s crook deformity. Intramedullary devices with proximal and distal locking in the case of fibrous dysplasia where the medullay canal is quite wide maintain proper alignment and prevent rotational instability at the osteotomy / fracture site. It prevents further deformity in a bone that is weak and being a load sharing device bone formation is superior.
