Osteogenesis imperfecta consists of a group of hereditary connective tissue diseases with fragility of the bone as a general feature. Frequently occurring other characteristics are blue sclerae, opalescent teeth, hearing loss, disorders of the skeleton, and hyperextensibility of the joints. Obliteration and the unusual shape of the pulp chambers may interfere with dental treatment.
