Abstract

A total of four children with osteogenesis imperfecta, three with type I and one with type III forms of the disease, were treated with synthetic salmon calcitonin for 18-24 months. The annual fracture rate was decreased during calcitonin therapy compared with the period preceding it. No patient presented a marked inflexion in linear growth and a transient improvement was even noticed in two cases.
