Type V OI is an autosomal dominant condition with a severity similar to that of type IV disease but a predisposition to hyperplastic callus formation. Characteristic features include ossification of the interosseous membrane of the forearms and legs, leading to limited pronation and supination and a radiopaque metaphyseal band in growing patients.
