Abstract

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a group of inherited disorder characterized by low bone mass, bone fragility and bone fracture, which also has several metabolic defects that predispose patient surgical and anesthetic risks. Furthermore, bisphosphonates (BPs) are main part of their therapy and require some surgical considerations. OI patients commonly suffer from long bone fractures due to mechanical loading but facial fractures are very rare in patients with such disorders. Facial fractures in OI patients were generally managed surgically in literature. From the best of our knowledge, we describe a first case of a mandible fracture in a patient with undignosed OI successfully managed by postoperative instructions without intervention
