Case contributed by The Radswiki


Pain in left forearm.


X-rays of the left forearm obtained through a backslab demonstrate a fracture of the ulna and radius on the background of abnormally shaped bones. They are bent and have thin shafts (gracile). Findings are consistent with the known diagnosis of osteogenesis imperfecta.
