Abstract

Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) is a genetic disorder characterized by bones that break easily, often from little or no apparent cause. In this article, we present a patient suffering from OI, who had concomitant active Behçet’s Disease(BD)with repeated oro-genital ulcers, skin postular eruptions and severe recurrent bilateral uveitis. This patient, is, to our knowledge the first reported case in literature.
