PMID:  15612379     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Experience gained over twelve years of treating infants with Osteogenesis Imperfecta is described. Emphasized are the facts that no child, including those with OI Sillence II, is too severely involved to not benefit at least from positioning to prevent severe secondary deformities; the Sillence classification does not predict functional ability, particularly regarding patiens with type III OI; disuse weakness and osteoporosis due to immobilization may be more handicapping than the underlying disease itself.
