Abstract
Osteogenesis imperfect (OI) is a generalized connective tissue disorder. We report the female neonate case with OI type III who showed severe bone deformities and fractures in utero. At birth, she showed multiple fractures in the clavicle, rib, femur, and wormian bone in the skull X-ray. We initiated pamidronate disodium infusion 30 mg/m2 in cycles of 3 consecutive days from when she was 4 days old, monthly for the first 3 months and every 2 months thereafter without adverse effects.
