Guillaume Bats had been suffering from brittle bone disease since birth.

A child who has this disease can suffer from repeated fractures as soon as they learn to walk. Result: injuries to the bones of the lower limbs such as fracture of the femur. Other symptoms that may be associated with brittle bone disease include short stature, bone deformities, spinal deformities, bluish whites of the eyes, or dentinogenesis imperfecta (prematurely worn teeth). Brittle bone disease is classified into four types.

Brittle bone disease is caused by a defect in the production of a component of bone: collagen. Osteogenesis imperfecta results from an anomaly of chromosomes 7 or 17. If this disease is genetic, it is not contagious.

Can this disease reduce the life expectancy of patients? it all depends on the severity of the symptoms. “Life expectancy is not so reduced, except in severe forms, because the deformation of the skeleton can lead to complications on organs,” said rheumatologist Pierre Lafforgue, head of the rheumatology department at Sainte- Marguerite in Marseilles, Women’s Journal.
