Osteitis deformans or Paget's disease of bone, fondly referred to as the 'collage of matrix madness', is a unique skeletal disease characterized by furious osteoclastic bone resorption followed by a period of hectic bone formation, resulting in again in the bone mass wherein the newly formed bone is disordered and architecturally unsound. A disease of obscure etiology, it usually manifests as progressive enlargement of one or multiple bones of the skeleton. Herewith we present a typical example of a polyostotic form of Paget's disease with classical clinical features and radiologic changes in one patient and a subclinical form of Paget's disease with marked radiological changes in the other patient.
