Osteogenesis imperfecta is a bone disorder characterized by increased bone fragility, decreased bone mass between others. It depends mostly on the prevalence of gene mutations which altered the structural architecture of collagen type I. Many classifications have been published focusing on altered genes and severity of clinical features, but the one published by Sillence in 1979 and reviewed in 2010 and 2015 is the most widely accepted. The main goal of treatment in patients with OI is to achieve improvement in rate of mineral bone density, increase mobility, diminish fracture rate, self care and functional independece associated with a high quality of life.

Key words: Osteogenesis imperfecta, classification.
