The clinical diagnosis is often made with incidental finding of facture in a toddler or infant with trivial injury.
A simple twist of the leg, or a mild fall which otherwise would not lead to a fracture, will cause the bone to break in a child with OI.

iBones foundation is an India based initiative that is focused on providing support, information and knowledge sharing for patients, their families and the medical staff involved in treating various bone-related conditions. While the initial focus is on providing support for rare children-related conditions such as brittle bone syndrome or Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI), scoliosis and other metabolic bone diseases (MBDs), the foundation will expand its support for other bone conditions and groups of patients over time. The foundation is a parent-doctor initiative, and is a result of various experiences – good and bad – by the patients and doctors. read more
