    • Imaging

      • Clinical Issues

        • Diagnostic Checklist

          TERMINOLOGY

          • Abbreviations

            • Paget disease (PD)
          • Synonyms

            • Osteitis deformans; osteoporosis circumscripta (skull)
          • Definitions

            • Disorder of abnormal/excessive bone remodeling characterized by coarse trabeculae, sclerosis, and expansion of one or more bones
            • Active disease begins with osteolytic phase followed by sclerotic or mixed active phase; inactive or quiescent phase demonstrates sclerotic lesions
            • Although thickened, abnormal bone is weaker and bone deformity or fracture is common
