McCune Albright syndrome (MAS) is characterized by endocrinopathies, café-au-lait spots, and fibrous dysplasia. Bisphosphonates are the most prescribed treatment for reducing the pain and their long-term use has been associated with atypical fractures of cortical bones like femur in patients. We present a 23-year-old girl diagnosed with MAS. She had an atypical mid-shaft left femoral fracture during simple walking. She had a history of long-term use of Alendronate. Because of the narrow medullary canal instead of the intramedullary nail, We used 14 holes hybrid locking plate for the lateral aspect of the thigh to fix the fracture and 5 holes dynamic compression Plate in the anterior surface to double fix it, reducing the probability of device failure. With double plate fixation and discontinuation of alendronate five months after surgery complete :union: achieved
