    McCune–Albright syndrome

    Not to be confused with Albright's hereditary osteodystrophy.

    McCune–Albright syndrome, also known as Albright syndrome, is a complex genetic disorder affecting the bone, skin, and endocrine systems.

    It was first described in 1937 by Donovan James McCune and Fuller Albright.[1][2][3]
