Paget's Disease Management

What Causes Paget’s Disease?

The exact cause of Paget’s Disease is unknown, however, it is believed that some viral infections can lead to its onset. Paget’s disease is characterized by excessive bone growth, which leads to brittle, fragile, and disorganized bone formation.

There is a genetic component in its etiology, 40% of people with Paget’s disease have a positive family history.

Throughout our lives, bone continually breaks down and re-forms itself; osteoclasts absorb the broken-down material, and osteoblasts create new bone. In Paget’s disease, this balance is dysfunctional, meaning there is not a harmonious relationship between the breakdown and rebuilding of bone tissue.

The Symptoms Of Paget’s Disease

Paget’s Disease is often coupled with a wide range of symptoms, which can vary from person to person.

The most common symptoms are bone pain and aching, increased bone fragility and fracture risk, deformity, inflammation around joints, nerve compression, and redness or swelling on the skin overlying affected bones. Hearing loss is also a common symptom due to bone growth around the ear.

Pain can be related to the abnormal bone growth itself, bone pain, but secondary forms of pain can develop such as:

  • Arthritis.
  • A compressed or trapped nerve.
  • Fractures.
