Abstract

Idiopathic Juvenile osteoporosis (IJO) is a rare primary bone demineralization disorder that presents in childhood. Because of the difficulty in diagnosis, it is unfamiliar to most pediatricians and there is a long list of differential diagnosis. We report a five year old boy who presented with generalized osteoporosis. Diagnosis of IJO was made by excluding other common causes of childhood osteoporosis.
