Rare childhood bone disorder linked to gene deletion in two Navajo patients
Two seemingly unrelated Native American children have one painful thing in common: juvenile Paget's disease (JPD), an extremely rare, bone metabolism disorder. Now, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and Shriners Hospitals for Children, St. Louis, have discovered that the two patients also share an unusual genetic defect.
