Osteogenesis imperfecta

DA: 122

Developmental anomaly information

Definition: A genetic disorder in which osteoblasts produce defective type I collagen, leading to osteopenia, multiple fractures, severe bony deformities and considerably shortened stature. Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) caused by mutations in the genes that codify for type I procollagen (ie, COL1A1 and COL1A2). The following 4 types of OI have been reported: Type I - Mild forms Type II - Extremely severe Type III - Severe Type IV - Undefined Precise typing is often difficult. Severity ranges from mild forms to lethal forms in the perinatal period. In addition, several syndromes resemble OI, with congenital bone fragility in association with other distinctive clinical or histologic features(Congenital brittle bones with rhizomelia; Congenital brittle bones with redundant callus formation; Osteoporosis pseudoglioma syndrome; Congenital brittle bones with craniosynostosis and ocular proptosis (Cole-Carpenter syndrome); Congenital brittle bones with joint contractures (Bruck syndrome); Congenital brittle bones with mineralization defect; Other recessive syndromes resembling osteogenesis imperfecta) .
