Paget's First Patient  
This drawing of Paget's first patient, published in his original paper, demonstrates the characteristic appearance that may occur with severe disease. In his original description, Paget wrote "The disease begins in middle age or later (and) affects most frequently the long bones of the lower extremities and the skull...The bones enlarge and soften, and those bearing weight yield and become unnaturally curved and misshapen." At the bottom of the slide, a marked increase in hat size is apparent. The patient also appears to be in pain.
