Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI)
People with OI have very fragile bones. There are different types of OI and a wide range in severity from person to person. In some people, the whites of the eyes, called sclerae, appear very blue. People with OI may be very short and some develop severe deformity of the limbs and/or spine. Teeth may also be fragile.
The clinic provides bone density assessment, and bone & mineral investigation. Children with secondary or primary osteoporosis have coordinated treatment with Bisphosphonates.
