Two additional cases of femoral fibrocartilaginous dysplasia are reported. The condition produces such significant angulation of the articular surfaces of the knee that progressive deformity is of concern to parents and surgeon alike. In both the reported cases, corrective distal femoral osteotomy confirmed the histologic diagnosis and ensured satisfactory gait in later childhood.
