Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva is a rare disorder progressing to ossification of tissues causing disability. We report a case of father and daughter in a family presenting with this condition. The diagnosis was made with X-rays. However, Technetium-99m Methylene Diphosphonate bone scan showed extensive extra-osseous localization of tracer suggesting ossification of multiple ligaments, tendons, muscles and connective tissue.
