Osteogenesis imperfecta is a group of rare disorders in which the
bones are extremely fragile and break or fracture easily, often without
apparent cause. The effects of the condition vary from case to case.
Treatment for osteogenesis imperfecta focuses on prevention of
breaks and development of bone mass and strong muscles. Care may include
assistive devices such as braces and wheelchairs.
