Osteogenesis imperfecta type 4

Common Name(s)

Osteogenesis imperfecta type 4, Osteogenesis imperfecta with normal sclerae, dominant form

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a connective tissue disorder that is caused by an abnormality of type I collagen in over 90% of cases. Due to considerable phenotypic variability, {20:Sillence et al. (1979)} developed a classification of OI subtypes: OI type I with blue sclerae ({166200}); perinatal lethal OI type II, also known as congenital OI ({166210}); OI type III, a progressively deforming form with normal sclera ({259420}); and OI type IV, with normal sclerae. {12:Levin et al. (1978)} suggested that OI subtypes could be further divided into types A and B based on the absence or presence of dentinogenesis imperfecta.
