A neonate with multiple fractures

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Fractures in a neonate commonly result from a genetic predisposition and birth trauma. Osteogenesis imperfecta, a rare heterogeneous group of disorders, mainly affecting the bones, remains the commonest cause of genetic osteoporosis. Osteogenesis imperfecta congenita (OIC) is the most severe form among them, with an incidence of 1 in 60000 live births. Presented here, is a neonate with OIC, having multiple bone fractures and deformities.
