Paget’s Disease of the bone

is a chronic disorder that affects the bones’ normal growth and remodeling process, leading to weakened and deformed bones. It is characterized by the excessive breakdown and formation of bone tissue, leading to abnormal bone growth and increased risk of fractures.

The cause of Paget’s disease is not fully understood, but it is thought to be related to a combination of genetic and environmental factors. It is more common in people over 50 years of age and affects men more than women.

the most common Symptoms of Paget’s Disease includes

  • Bone pain
  • deformities, and fractures
  • Neurological symptoms, such as hearing loss
  • Vision changes
  • Nerve compression due to the enlarged bone structures.

The diagnosis of Paget’s Disease is made through a combination of clinical examination,

  • imaging tests
  • and blood tests
  • Imaging tests such as X-rays, CT scans, and bone scans can help to detect the characteristic changes in bone structure and rule out other bone diseases.

The goal of Paget’s disease treatment is to lessen bone discomfort and avoid side effects including fractures and deformities. Drugs like bisphosphonates are frequently used to slow down bone deterioration and encourage healthy bone development. In some circumstances, surgery may be required to fix fractures or repair bone abnormalities.

Patients with Paget’s disease may also benefit from physical therapy and assistive devices such as braces or crutches to improve mobility and prevent falls.

Patients with Paget’s disease should undergo routine monitoring because the condition can worsen over time and lead to problems if neglected. As a result, the patient may receive therapy from a multidisciplinary team of medical specialists, including rheumatologists, orthopedic surgeons, and physical therapists.
