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.

Prognosis for Juvenile Paget disease:
Bone deformities may be evident by five years of age. The condition becomes progressively severe with many children requiring wheelchairs by the middle of the second decade of life. Milder cases may result in survival past the age of 50 years.
