Abstract

Osteogenesis Imperfecta is a rare bone disease which affects all the bones in the body including the middle ear ossicles making them fragile. This condition is characterized primarily by frequent bone fractures and complications like respiratory, cardiac, neurological complications, and hearing loss. Hearing loss is usually believed to occur and progress in the middle ages. For audiologists, thus it is important to understand the Audiological profile observed in this population for providing effective ways of management. Current case report is an evidence of a 5 year old child with Osteogenesis Imperfecta having initial stages of hearing impairment and its management. This report is aimed at improving the existing literature and to highlight the fact that hearing loss could appear early in life in the reported population.
