Juvenile Paget disease

Juvenile Paget disease: Introduction

Juvenile Paget disease: A rare genetic bone disorder involving abnormal loss of bone mineralization and remineralization, broadened bone shafts and high levels of alkaline phosphatase in the blood. Some juvenile cases are relatively mild. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Juvenile Paget disease is available below.

Symptoms of Juvenile Paget disease

Treatments for Juvenile Paget disease

  • Treatment may involve surgery to correct bone deformities, fractures or to release nerves trapped by abnormal bone formation. The condition may be managed through administration of bisphosphonates or calcitonin injections - this is not a cure but can reduce symptoms. Pain medication may be needed to control pain. Affected patients should eat a healthy diet with good levels of calcium and vitamin D to support the bones.
