Hi, I may need few more information to have provisional diagnosis. Repeated fractures and blue sclera, points towards some genetic cause. Hopefully child has been seen by a pediatrician. I would prefer that child is seen by a pediatric orthopedician and not adult ortho doctor. Hope this helps you. Happy parenting.
