Osteogenesis imperfecta is a bone disorder in which three factors that influence bone strength (quality, mass, and geometry of osseous tissue) are affected. Pneumatization refers to the development of air-filled cavities inside the bone. Knowledge about these air-filled cavities provides valuable information for understanding the diagnosis and spread of various pathologic entities like hemangiomas, giant cell tumors, eosinophilic granulomas, and even metastatic tumor deposits. This paper presents a case in which radiologic, clinical, biochemical, and karyotypic evaluations lead to a diagnosis of osteogenesis imperfecta. ORTHODONTICS (CHIC) 2013;14:e150–e155. doi: 10.11607/ortho.947

Key words: karyotyping, osteogenesis imperfecta, pneumatization
