Unnimaya Premkumar*, Anjali George, Josna James, Ansu Anna Dan, Apollo James and T. Sivakumar

ABSTRACT

Osteogenesis Imperfecta(OI) is also known as brittle bone disease characterized by increased bone fragility resulting from the abnormal collagen formation. Blue sclera, dentinogeneis imperfecta, fractures, scoliois, pectus excavatum are the main clinical features of OI. Some OI patients have serious cardiac problems related to their disease, including mitral valve prolapse, aortic valve insufficiency and dilation of the aorta. The management of OI involves multidisciplinary care including general practioners, physiotherapist, rehabilitation and orthopedic surgery. Here we are reporting a rare case of osteogenesis imperfecta with mitral valve regurgitation and congestive cardiac failure.

Keywords: Osteogenesis Imperfecta, Blue sclera, Scoliosis.
