A 12 years old boy, suffering from hereditary Osteogenesis Imperfect (OI) type III with COL1A2 gene dysfunction, which was confirmed by a molecular genetic test. The radiography scan of the right forearm detected linear osteosynthetic metal materials for the repair of previous pathological fractures. The bones of the forearm and upper arm are deformed and arched, with reduced mineralization. The bones are short, given the age of the boy. OI is a disorder of collagen, a protein which forms the framework for the bone structure. Fragile bones that break easily, it is also known as brittle bone disease.
