Paget's disease (PD) is a chronic progressive disease of the bone characterized by abnormal bone resorption and deposition affecting either single bone (monostotic) or many bones (polyostotic) with uncertain etiology. We report a case of isolated mandibular involvement in a 65-year-old female patient, clinically asymptomatic with abnormally increased alkaline phosphatase level (1 368.1 U/l). Although prevalence of PD is common in western countries, but rare in Asian chapter, that too isolated mandibular involvement, considering this fact, we report this case of PD for documentation.
