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...
Bone diseases affect the development and structure of bone. They include: *Bone cyst*Bone spur (Osteophytes)*Craniosynostosis *Fibrous dysplasia*Bone tumor*Giant cell tumor of bone*Hypophosphatasia *Osteoporosis*Primary hyperparathyroidism *Klippel-Feil syndrome *Osteitis Condensans Ilii *Osteochondritis Dissecans*Osteochondroma (Bone Tumor)*Osteosarcoma (Bone Tumor)*Osteomyelitis *Osteopenia *Renal Osteodystrophy*Osteomalacia
