Answer

The overall incidence of OI is approximately 1 case for every 20,000 live births; however, the mild form is underdiagnosed, and the actual prevalence may be higher. Prevalence appears to be similar worldwide, though an increased rate has been observed in two major tribal groups in Zimbabwe.
