Paget's Disease Causes

The exact cause of Paget's disease remains uncertain. Several theories have been suggested, including a viral cause (such as paramyxovirus including measles, respiratory syncytial virus, or human parainfluenza virus).

There is also thought to be a genetic link for Paget's disease with a possible autosomal dominant inheritance.
