I have a 7 week old son who has the following symptoms: as of now 3 bloody noses, fractured ribs, unusual marks (thought to be bruises), excessive sweating, constipation and whites of his eyes are a tint of gray. I have found Osteogenesis Imperfecta are there any other possible diagnosis? Doctors state there was no medical diagnosis for these symptoms but after research i found OI. I'm wondering if there was something else out there?

  • Who is left alone with the baby? Are there any older children or an unstable person around the child? After ruling that out, of course, you need the best medical care for the child. I think the doctors should do a referral to a Children's Hospital...fast..

  • I know there are other genetic possibilities, but no time to research for you-- sorry. Everyone jumps on the physical abuse issue, and OI is the first and usually only other medical possibility considered, but if no abuse is suspected & they rule out OI, see a geneticist ASAP.
