What is Paget's Disease? 

Paget's Disease is the second most common chronic bone disorder which occurs in up to 2% of adults over the age of 55 years and the incidence increases to approximately 8% of people over 80 years. 

Paget’s Disease of bone is metabolic bone disorder in which there is a marked increase in bone turnover in localised parts of the skeleton.  This results in an abnormal bone leading to expansion, structural weakness, often resulting in deformity and an increased risk of fracture, together with pain. 

The alterations in bone shape result in mechanical changes but also can lead to pressure effects causing pain in adjacent joints and nerve compression syndromes.  If there is involvement of the skull this can lead to deafness. The abnormal bone has increased metabolic activity and blood flow which in itself contributes to the pain and can also increase neurological complications as part of a vascular steal syndrome. 

Did you know that the UK has the highest prevalence of Paget’s disease of bone in the world?
