Acute ischemia of the lower limb. An unusual complication of Paget’s disease of bone

Paget’s disease of bone (osteitis deformans) is one of the most common skeletal diseases, characterised by bone distortion and the loss of interior structure. Asymptomatic evolution is usual, so diagnosis is likely to be made only when complications of the disease appear. This paper describes such a diagnosis made in a patient with acute lower limb ischemia caused by the compression of the superficial femoral artery between the adductor muscles and an exostosis of the femur.
