Osteogenesis imperfecta is an inherited disorder of connective tissue that affects the skeleton, ligaments, skin, sclera and dentin. We experienced a 2 month old female infant of osteogenesis imperfecta. The present case showed failure to thrive, multiple fracture of the bone, thinning of cortex, osteoporosis, blue sclera, high-arched palate and craniotabes. For the treatment of the fracture of right femur, Bryant traction and long leg splint were done.
