Any one of a range of hereditary connective tissue diseases characterised by abnormally brittle, easily fractured bones. Also known as osteitis fragilitans or brittle bone disease.
autosomal dominant disorder of connective tissue characterized by brittle bones that fracture easily
A group of connective tissue disorders that are hereditary and result in fragile bones (also known as the "brittle bone disease") While these individuals do not experience concomitant cognitive or language impairments, they frequently require alternative access for written communication, due to the difficulties they have with writing due to frequent fractures.
A genetic disorder in which bones are abnormally fragile, leading to multiple breaks and deformity.
A congenital condition marked by imperfect bone formation and resulting in brittle bones which break easily. Sometimes called brittle bone disease.
A spectrum of diseases of bone due to a basic alteration in the formation of bone connective tissue matrix, resulting in an inability of the matrix to fully mineralize,, a tendency for multiple broken bones, blue sclera of the eyes, and associated dentinogenesis imperfecta.
a genetic disorder that causes brittle bones that break very easily
A large and miscellaneous group of conditions of abnormal fragility and plasticity of bone, with recurring fractures on trivial trauma. (SMD)
A group of genetic diseases of the bone that result in brittle and frail bones.
A genetic disorder involving defective development of connective tissues, characterized by brittle and fragile bones that are easily fractured by the slightest trauma.
a genetic disorder involving defects in the connective tissue. It can affect the bones, making them abnormally brittle and subject to fractures. A tendency to bruise easily, blue sclerae, hearing loss and translucent skin are other possible manifestations of this disease. This is often confused with child abuse and needs to be ruled out in suspected cases.
a genetic (inherited) disorder characterized by bones that break easily. There may not be a particular cause for the broken bones.
Commonly known as Brittle Bone Disease. Symptoms include fragile bones, loose joints, sweating, poor teeth, deafness, a short stature and blue whites of the eyes. OI is a hereditary disease.
Osteogenesis imperfecta (sometimes known as Brittle Bone Disease) is a group of genetic bone disorders. It is one of the brittle bone diseases. People with OI either have less collagen than normal or the quality is poorer than normal.
