Answer

Care of patients with OI is multidisciplinary. Team members may include an occupational therapist (OT), a physical therapist (PT), a nutritionist, an audiologist, an orthopedic surgeon, a neurosurgeon, a pneumologist, and a nephrologist, among others. Periodic evaluation and intervention by an OT, a PT, or both is warranted.

Offer genetic counseling to the parents of a child with OI who plan to have more children. During genetic counseling, the possibility of germline mosaicism must be discussed.
