Osteogenesis imperfecta is a group of inherited disorders that mainly affect the bones. The term "osteogenesis imperfecta" means imperfect bone formation. The condition causes bones to be fragile and easily broken and is also responsible for other health problems. Genetic changes are related to the following types of osteogenesis imperfecta. osteogenesis imperfecta, type I osteogenesis imperfecta, type II osteogenesis imperfecta, type III osteogenesis imperfecta, type IV Researchers have def...
