About Pagets

Paget's disease of the bone, called Osteitis deformans, literally means deformity in the bone. The exact cause of this deformity is still not clear. Although the disease has been recognized since 1877, it was considered a rare disease until recently. The change in perception occurred because routine radiographic examinations detected the condition in a number of individuals who are otherwise healthy.
