Hyperextension at the cervico-dorsal (CD) junction is rare in osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) with no cases being reported in the literature. We report a three-year-old child with OI (Sillence type III2) who presented with: hyperextension at CD junction; low bone mass; thoracolumbar kyphosis; bilateral anterolateral bowing of femora; and failure to thrive.
Keywords : hyperextension; cervico-dorsal junction; osteogenesis imperfecta.
