Multiple Osteomas known as osteomatosis is seen in Gardener's syndrome which is defined as multiple Osteomas of the jaws accompanied by colorectal polyps with high malignant potentials, anomalies involving soft and hard tissues, congenital retinal pigment hypertrophies and multiple impacted or supernumerary teeth, enostoses or epidermoid cysts.
Since osteoma develops before colorectal polyps in Gardener's syndrome, early diagnosis is important for saving patient's life.
