Osteogenesis Imperfecta - Causes

As yet, medical science has been unable to pinpoint the exact cause of this debilitating condition.

It is usually inherited as an autosomal dominant trait, but autosomal recessive and non-hereditary types of the disease are also known to occur. This disease is also closely related to a peculiar condition called dentinogenesis imperfecta. This is a condition that affects dentin formation in the tooth tissue. Dentin is the second layer present after enamel and protects the pulp, which is the nerve of the tooth.

"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!
