  The prevalence of Paget's disease is substantial in certain areas of the world, while it is rare in others. The diagnosis is usually made after the age of 50. The numbers of male and female patients are nearly equal, and family history may be positive for Paget's disease in up to 40% of patients. In some families Paget's disease is linked to a locus on chromosome 18.
