In severe osteogenesis imperfecta fractures may occur very easily with only slight pain. Proximal muscle weakness This is characteristic of osteomalacia (Chapter 4). Its cause is unknown. The first complaints are generally concerned with the lower limbs — a waddling gait, difficulty in climbing stairs, difficulty in getting out of a low chair.

The reader should particularly consult Fourman and Royer (1968), Paterson (1974), and Nordin (1976), for classic metabolic bone diseases and McKusick (1972) for inherited connective tissue disorders. In case he should disregard the importance of growth, this is dealt with first. GROWTH Growth may be abnormal in many diseases both of the skeleton and of other systems. VI). 9.
