Although the most common oral manifestation of osteogenesis imperfecta is dentinogenesis imperfecta, several authors have described jaw fractures and radiolucent bone lesions associated with this disease. We report a case of a 23-year-old white woman with osteogenesis imperfecta and dentinogenesis imperfecta who developed multiple unilocular, bilateral, radiolucent lesions of the mandible 5 years after presenting with a condylar fracture. This is the first documentation by surgical and histopathologic examination that the radiolucent lesions in this particular case represent multiple idiopathic bone cysts.
