|Abstract:||Gorham’s disease/ vanishing/ disappearing bone disease is a rare musculoskeletal disorder reported in literature. Due to its rarity, its diagnosis is usually by high index of suspicion. The management is usually individualized since there is no known standard therapy. The prognosis is generally good if diagnosed early and managed accordingly except in situations of chylothorax where there is associated increased mortality. We report a case which was diagnosed and managed successfully with a one year follow-up in a tertiary teaching hospital in Uganda.|
