Conditions with similar signs and symptoms from Orphanet
Differential diagnoses include conditions that may have similar clinical or radiographic features to DGI such as osteogenesis imperfecta and dentin dysplasia (see this term). The clinical symptoms may be mistaken for hypocalcified amelogenesis imperfecta, congenital erythropoietic porphyria, conditions leading to early tooth loss (Kostmann syndrome, cyclic neutropenia, Chediak-Hegashi syndrome, Langerhans cell histiocytosis, Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome), vitamin D-resistant rickets (see these terms), as well as permanent teeth discoloration due to tetracyclines, and vitamin D-dependent rickets. It is important to investigate for a history of bone fractures with minimal trauma, hearing loss and to check for blue sclerae to rule out osteogenesis imperfecta (see this term).
