Osteogenesis imperfecta (O. I.) is a generalized hereditary disease characterized by multiple fracture due to bone fragility, blue sclera, auditory disorder, and dentinogenesis imperfecta. In addition, this disease may show hypermobility of joints, scoliosis, and hemorrhagic diathesis.
W e experienced a rare case of O. I. with temporomandibular joint ankylosis recently. The patient was a 27-year-old male with the chief complaint of severe immobility of the mandible caused by a fracture of the right mandibular condyle in his infancy.
In this case, low position arthroplasty was carried out with an excellent result.
