    There was an episode of Horizon about that particular affliction. I believe it is called FOP (I can't remember what it stands for) and involves T-lymphocytes attacking non-foreign tissues.

    How does that turn muscle into bone? :confused: I would have thought the muscle cells would have to dedifferentiate first.

    btw, I am not disputing it. I am just curious.

    You could always look it up! I can't remember the exact process. It's fascinating, yet terrible. I'm going to look it up, now.

    I don't think we fully understand the process yet - it seems to be described as 'ossification', which doesn't reveal much other than the obvious.

    Ossification (comes from Latin, I think) just means to turn to bone, as petrification means to turn to stone.

    It appears to me that the muscle isnt actually turning into bone, rather it is destroyed by T-lymphocytes, and the failure to switch of the bodies mechanism of bone formation in the embryonic state.
