Clinical Information
  • A group of usually autosomal dominant inherited disorders characterized by defective synthesis of collagen type i resulting in defective collagen formation. It is characterized by brittle and easily fractured bones.
  • Autosomal dominant collagen disease resulting from defective biosynthesis of collagen type i and characterized by brittle, osteoporotic, and easily fractured bones; may also present with blue sclerae, loose joints, and imperfect dentin formation.
  • Collagen diseases characterized by brittle, osteoporotic, and easily fractured bones. It may also present with blue sclerae, loose joints, and imperfect dentin formation. Most types are autosomal dominant and are associated with mutations in collagen type i.
  • Osteogenesis imperfecta (oi) is a genetic disorder in which bones break easily. Sometimes the bones break for no known reason. Oi can also cause weak muscles, brittle teeth, a curved spine and hearing loss. The cause is a gene defect that affects how you make collagen, a protein that helps make bones strong. Usually you inherit the faulty gene from a parent. Sometimes, it is due to a mutation, a random gene change.oi can range from mild to severe and symptoms vary from person to person. A person may have just a few or as many as several hundred fractures in a lifetime. There is no cure, but you can manage symptoms. Treatments include exercise, pain medicine, physical therapy, wheelchairs, braces and surgery. nih: national institute of arthritis and musculoskeletal and skin diseases

ICD-9-CM codes are used in medical billing and coding to describe diseases, injuries, symptoms and conditions. ICD-9-CM 756.51 is one of thousands of ICD-9-CM codes used in healthcare. Although ICD-9-CM and CPT codes are largely numeric, they differ in that CPT codes describe medical procedures and services. Can't find a code?
