osteitis deformans

^ http://www.ebi.ac.uk/efo/EFO_0004261

A disease marked by repeated episodes of increased bone resorption followed by excessive attempts at repair, resulting in weakened, deformed bones of increased mass. The resultant architecture of the bone assumes a mosaic pattern in which the fibers take on a haphazard pattern instead of the normal parallel symmetry.

Synonyms: Paget's disease (bone), Paget disease (bone)
