ABSTRACT
Paget's disease is a progressive bone disease, monostotic or polyostotic, characterised by hypertrophy of affected bones and accelerated disorganised bone remodelling. It results in bone deformities and pain, with a risk for articular and neurological complications, and fractures. The risk of complications, and thus the therapeutic decision, is a function of the age of the patient, and the severity and the activity of the disease. Bisphosphonates are first-line therapy for Paget's disease, and the advent of the new bisphosphonates permits a dramatic improvement in treatment. The optimal treatment regimen should obtain normalisation or quasi-normalisation of markers of bone remodelling. This result has the potential for a long-term control of the disease.
