About Osteogenesis Imperfecta

When the bone formation is less than perfect

Osteogenesis imperfecta is a serious disease of the bone with no known cause. As the name indicates, the disease affects the bones during their formation in vivo and renders them brittle. This condition occurs in two forms—one is present at birth and the other manifests later in childhood. Almost all infants with the former type of Osteogenesis imperfecta are stillborn or die shortly after birth.

"If a baby is unlucky enough to survive till adulthood, the bones in the body, which have taken a severe beating in the way of fractures, are hideously deformed." I think it's terrible to make this kind of statement and judgement in your article when many people live very full lives with this condition. Please consider rephrasing this!
