Portrait of Sir James Paget

  Osteitis deformans was first described in 1876 at the Medical Chirurgical Society meeting in England by Sir James Paget, a well-known English surgeon. Now known as Paget's disease, the term osteitis deformans had arisen from the concept that the disease was an inflammation of bone resulting in deformities. Paget's disease of bone should not be confused with Paget's disease of the breast or vulva, which are types of malignant disease that also bear the discoverer's name. The focus of this slide collection is Paget's disease of bone.
