Case Discussion

Multiple x-rays of a child demonstrating wide spread abnormalities. 

The skull demonstrates prominent wormian bones, and platybasia

The long bones demonstrate numerous horizontal lines (so called zebra stripes) associated with cyclical bisphosphonate therapy. Additionally, a number of united fractures are noted, particularly of the femurs and left tibia. 

Features are consistent with osteogenesis imperfecta
