Not rare: The plaques are often on the side, causing the excessive curvature. Difficult to treat, but you might try topical application of DMSO (horse liniment) available from a health food store or feed store. Use 70% concentration. Higher concentration may be irritating with repeated use. High dose vitamin E (1,000 IU) per day has also been used.
