Keywords: Osteogenesis Imperfecta, Intrauterin Fetal Fractures.


The fetus is sheltered very well from trauma by the uterine environment; Therefore, intrauterin fetal fractures, particularly, long bone fractures, are rarely seen. When fetal fracture is detected, it is strongly suggest osteogenezis imperfecta congenita.
