Case Report

We review the literature and present six case histories in which a neural deficit was caused by the bone proliferation associated with Paget's disease of the vertebrae. There were three cases of compression of the spinal cord and three of compression of nerve root or the cauda equina. The orthopaedic surgeon must be aware of this manifestation of Paget's disease if he is to make the diagnosis promptly and institute effective treatment.
