The article author focuses on the causes of the disorder osteogenesis imperfecta. A case study has been elaborated involving a 41-year-old man who was diagnosed to have an osteopenia and compression fractures after a vehicle accident. The author pointed out that although the cause of osteopenia and compression fractures is rare, osteogenesis imperfecta should be considered in young patients who present with a history of multiple fractures and osteopenia.
