Please see the menu for information regarding pain, Paget's research and much more! Alternatively, they can be posted to you. Throughout life, bone is renewed and repaired through a process called bone remodelling. Bone affected by Paget's disease may be enlarged and misshapen. For those with symptoms, these may include pain, deformity and fracture. Either single or multiple bones may be affected with common sites being the spine, skull, pelvis and thigh femur.

M&D DECK: DISEASES OF FACIAL JAW BONES
Facial palsy refers to the neurological syndrome of facial paralysis. It can result from a broad range of physiological insults to the facial nerve or its central nervous system origins. The most common causes of this is Bell palsy. While facial palsy refers to the clinical presentation of facial paralysis and associated symptoms of facial nerve compromise it can sometimes be used interchangeably with facial nerve palsy which refers specifically to paralysis caused by a lesion in the facial nerve.

Devil facial tumour disease DFTD is an aggressive non-viral clonally transmissible cancer which affects Tasmanian devils , a marsupial native to Australia. There is often more than one primary tumour. DFTD is rare in juveniles. The most plausible route of transmission is through biting, particularly when canine teeth come into direct contact with the diseased cells. DFTD tumours are large soft tissue masses which become centrally ulcerated.
Paget's disease of bone commonly known as Paget's disease or, historically, osteitis deformans is a condition involving cellular remodeling and deformity of one or more bones. The affected bones show signs of dysregulated bone remodeling at the microscopic level, specifically excessive bone breakdown and subsequent disorganized new bone formation. The exact cause is unknown, although leading theories indicate both genetic and acquired factors see Causes.
