About Heterotopic Ossification

Osseous Heteroplasia, Progressive, also known as progressive osseous heteroplasia, is related to myositis ossificans and ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament of spine, and has symptoms including polydipsia and muscle weakness. An important gene associated with Osseous Heteroplasia, Progressive is GNAS (GNAS Complex Locus), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Signal Transduction and Akt Signaling. The drugs Etoricoxib and Cyclooxygenase 2 Inhibitors have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include bone, skin and skeletal muscle, and related phenotypes are subcutaneous nodule and limitation of joint mobility

Major Symptoms of Heterotopic Ossification

If you have relevant symptoms, please seek medical attention promptly for diagnosis and treatment.

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Heterotopic Ossification

Homotopic ossification is a rare disease that mainly manifests as proliferation and tumor-like changes in subcutaneous tissue or organs. Because this is a rare disease, there are no specific lifestyle recommendations to accommodate it. However, patients should follow the doctor's advice and take active treatment.
