This study comprises [a] seven cases of active osteogenesis imperfecta in children with multiple recent fractures (Table 1, Cases 1-7), [b] three adults with burned-out osteogenesis imperfecta who suffered numerous fractures in childhood (Table 2, Cases 8-10), [c] the mother of a child with this disease who presented only with blue sclerae but who had never suffered a fracture (Table 3, Case 14), and [d] three other
