Paget's disease is uncommon in patients younger than 50 years of age. Multifocal giant cell tumors arising in bone affected by Paget's disease have been described previously in 37 cases. A case of a 38-year-old man with polyostotic Paget's disease and multifocal giant cell tumors responsive to steroid therapy is presented.
