Unusual dentinal changes in dentinogenesis imperfecta associated with osteogenesis imperfecta. A case report.Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol. 1992 Apr; 73(4):461-4.OS
A case is described of a boy with dentinogenesis imperfecta associated with osteogenesis imperfecta. The dentin of extracted deciduous teeth was found to show an abrupt transition to a normal tubular structure before a reversion to the more typical structure seen in dentinogenesis imperfecta. This change in the dentin appeared to have occurred in a chronologic manner. The possibilities that either a metabolic disturbance or a temporary reduced expression of the mutant gene had caused the abnormality and could account for the unusual histologic findings are discussed.
