PAGET'S BONE DISEASE
Paget's bone disease, also known as osteitis deformans, is characterized by a significant increase in bone resorption and turnover in localized parts of the skeleton causing enlargement and thickening of the bone that is disordered and architecturally unstable.
The prevalence increases with age, with men and women affected equally.
Genetic factors and/or viral infection may play a role in the etiology.
May affect one bone (monostotic) or several bones (polyostotic).
By decreasing frequency, involved bones may include pelvic bone and sacrum, spine, skull and femur, tibia, humeri and clavicles.

A randomized clinical trial (RCT) in 216 patients with painful diabetic neuropathy (PDN) refractory to 1 year of treatment with gabapentinoids and 1 other analgesic class shows that high-frequency (10 kHz) spinal cord stimulation (SCS) plus conventional medical management (CMM) is superior to CMM alone in terms of pain relief and health-related quality of life (HRQoL).
