Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) describes a group of rare diseases which are associated with an increased tendency to bone fractures. In addition to the main symptom of fractures, OI is characterized by a variety of pediatric, pediatric orthopedic and anesthesiological challenges. The multidisciplinary expertise is mostly concentrated at specialized centers. The current treatment concepts aim at minimizing the fracture rate, prevention and treatment of deformities, pain reduction and improved mobility. In addition to pharmacotherapy, conservative and surgical measures are also applied. Scheduled interventions on the extremities are one of the most commonly performed operations in children with OI. Various intramedullary nailing techniques are available. This article addresses the important aspects of multidisciplinary care of children with OI concerning the treatment of the lower extremities. Keywords: Brittle bone disease; Deformity; Fracture; Fracture tendency; Multidisciplinary.
