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.
