Paget's disease - NHS Choices video



From the NHS Choices YouTube channel: An expert describes the various areas of the body that can be affected by Paget's disease - a condition in which the normal cycle of bone growth is disrupted.

The earliest references to journal clubs are in the memoirs and letters of Sir James Paget, a British surgeon, who described a group at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital in London in the mid-1800s as “a kind of club … a small room over a baker’s shop near the Hospital-gate where we could sit and read the journals.”

Sir Paget (11 January 1814 – 30 December 1899) is best remembered for Paget's disease and is considered, together with Rudolf Virchow, as one of the founders of scientific medical pathology.
