Caption: Paget's disease. Coloured computed tomography (CT) scan of the skull of a 60 year old patient with Paget's disease. The front of the skull is at the top of the images. The sides and back of the skull have become thickened. Paget's disease, or osteitis deformans, is a chronic bone disease that results in enlarged or deformed bones. The rate of bone reabsorption and formation become out of balance, leading to structurally disorganised, weaker and enlarged bone. Treatment is not usually required, but can be with painkillers or bisphosphonates, which slow the abnormal process and promote growth of normal bone.
