X-Ray Tibia/Fibula (Lateral view)
Lateral x-ray of tibia/fibula reveals bony expansion, anterior bowing of the tibia with cortical thickening and trabecular coarsening. No cortical break or periosteal reaction noted.
Paget’s disease (osteitis deformans) is a common, metabolic bone dysfunction characterized by excessive abnormal bone re-modelling. It largely impacts the pelvis, spine, skull and long bones.
The paget’s disease mainly involves the diaphysis of the tibia when affecting long bones.
Lateral bowing is generally seen when paget’s disease is involving femur in compared with anterior bowing of tibia.
