There is often overlap between connective tisue disorders. Your daughter may have some features of osteogenesis imperfecta, which in a pure form is associated with such easy fracturing that parents are sometimes falsely accused of abuse. Does your daughter have a blue ring in the whties of her eyes around the cornea? A blue-grey tinge is commmon in EDS, but a more intense color is said often to be present with osteogenesis imperfecta.|
