osteogenesis

 [os″te-o-jen´ĕ-sis]
the formation of bone; the development of the bones.
osteogenesis imperfec´ta an inherited condition marked by abnormally brittle bones that are subject to fracture. The most common kind is osteogenesis imperfecta tarda, in which the fractures occur when the child begins to walk; it is usually attended by blue coloration of the sclera (Lobstein's disease) and sometimes by otosclerotic deafness (van der Hoeve's syndrome). A less common, usually lethal type is osteogenesis imperfecta congenita, in which deformities occur in utero and the child is born with them. (See Atlas 1, Part B).

osteogenesis imperfecta
an inherited condition marked by abnormally brittle bones that are subject to fracture. Affected lambs and calves are normal in appearance but are unable to stand. There is a defect in formation of bone matrix caused by a deficiency of procollagenN-peptidase. Called also paper-bone disease, juvenile osteoporosis.

Patient discussion about osteogenesis

Q. is their any way to cure osteogenesis imperfecta my son has this bone disorder and can;t stand to see him cry thank you for any help

A. as far as i know- OI is a genetic problem. today there is no cure to genetic problems. there is a big research on gene therapy but there's a long long road before we will see any result..sorry... but there are several treatments that can ease your son's pain, here is a wonderful site that stores a vast amount of information about IO, including recent studies and researches:
