In brief: Bone disorder

Paget' disease is a localized disorder of bone remodeling that involves excessive bone resorption, followed by increased bone formation.
This overactivity followed by compensatory bone cell activity leads to a structurally disorganized mass of bone (woven bone), which is weaker, larger, more vascular, and more susceptible to fracture. It can be seen on x-rays, and can be a cause for bone pain.
