ratings and reviews)
Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a group of genetic disorders that mainly affect the bones. The term ""osteogenesis imperfecta"" means imperfect bone formation. People with this condition have bones that break easily, often from mild trauma or with no apparent cause. Multiple fractures are common, and in severe cases, can occur even before birth. Milder cases may involve only a few fractures over a person's lifetime. There are at least eight recognized forms of osteogenesis imperfecta, designated type I through type VIII.
HOW IS OSTEOGENESIS IMPERFECTA DIAGNOSED?
The diagnosis of this ailment is done with the help of X rays and a detailed physical examination based on the various symptoms that may be seen. Also, the doctor will take the medical history of the patient as well as the family history, to ascertain the cause and treatment thereafter.
HOW IS OSTEOGENESIS IMPERFECTA TREATED?
As there is no current treatment for OI, so the goal of treatment is to minimize the effects of the disorder. This includes increasing bone density and muscle mass, minimizing fractures, maintaining or restoring bone alignment, maximizing musculoskeletal function, and maintaining optimal growth and well-being.

They attend school, develop friendships and other relationships, have careers, raise families, participate in sports and other recreational activities and are active members of their communities.
