Paget disease of bone
The disease is often asymptomatic but can cause bone pain, fractures, bone deformity, and symptoms due to compression of surrounding structures (eg, hearing loss, lumbar radicular pain). Genetics and viruses are suspected to play a role in causing the disease.
Bisphosphonates are used to treat the disease.
