1/3. The articular manifestations of Paget's disease of bone. A case report.

    Disorders of joints are commonly associated with Paget's disease of bone but are often disregarded or attributed to the underlying Pagetic condition. The authors evaluated a 69-year-old man with extensive Paget's disease of bone, degenerative arthritis, calcific periarthritis, and gout. The degenerative arthritis and calcific periarthritis of the shoulders was originally mistaken for Paget's disease of the proximal humerus. The wrist arthritis was attributed to Paget's disease until evaluation of surgical pathology specimens showed intraarticular gouty granulomas. In evaluating and treating a patient with Paget's disease of bone, the orthopedic surgeon should be aware that the successful treatment of associated articular disorders may require therapeutic measures in addition to those used in treating the Paget's disease.

2/3. Recurrent calcific periarthritis, erosive osteoarthritis and hypophosphatasia: a family study.

    We describe a mother and 2 daughters with familial recurrent calcific periarthritis in a family with an inherited tendency to develop generalized osteoarthritis (OA). Low levels of serum alkaline phosphatase were found in 1 of the daughters while the mother developed erosive OA in later life. HLA typing was noncontributory. However, the 3 individuals with periarthritis possessed blood group A , while the 6 unaffected family members were O . The experience of this family adds weight to the case that recurrent calcific periarthritis may be due to an inherited abnormality of alkaline phosphatase production and suggest that this may also be responsible for the recently observed association of calcific periarthritis and erosive OA.

3/3. Recurrent calcific periarthritis leading to erosive osteoarthritis.

    Over a period of 31 years the patient described had recurrent attacks of acute calcific periarthritis at multiple sites. In the latter years of her follow-up she has developed an erosive polyarticular osteoarthritis at sites previously affected by calcific periarthritis and we speculate that there may be a pathogenetic link between these two conditions in some patients.
