What is Paget’s disease?

Paget’s disease is a disease condition of the bone. In a healthy bone, old pieces of bone are involved in a process of remodeling and they are replaced by new bone. In this disease, this process of remodeling is shifted out of balance, so that the new bone that is formed is irregularly shaped, fragile and brittle.
