Osteogenesis Imperfecta News and Research

RSS
Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a rare genetic disorder that, like juvenile osteoporosis, is characterized by bones that break easily, often from little or no apparent cause. However, OI is caused by a problem with the quantity or quality of bone collagen resulting from a genetic defect.
