Paget's disease is a disorder of bone remodeling. Its occurrence in hemodialysis patients is very rare. Here, we report a case of Paget's disease in a 77-year-old patient on hemodialysis who presented with elevated serum level of alkaline phosphatase without any clinical or laboratory findings of secondary hyperparathyroidism. To our best knowledge, this is the first reported case of Paget's disease in a patient with end-stage renal disease from Iran.
