Paget's disease of bone is a relatively common condition which usually is asymptomatic. Furthermore, there is limited experience in surgical procedures, especially in realignment of severe skeletal deformities. Likewise, there are often relapses in tibial deformities treated with plates. We report a case of a severe tibial deformity treated with multiple osteotomies and stabilized with an unreamed medullary nail.
