Introduction & Objective: Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a generalized connective tissue disorder and it is mostly inherited as an autosomal dominant trait. It may present with fragile bones, blue sclerae and hearing loss. We present two cases of OI. Case presentation: First case is a 18 Y/O man referred with bilateral hearing loss, who had 40db hearing loss in left side(operated ear) and underwent stapedotomy and received a good hearing. Second case is a 13 Y/O boy referred with bilateral hearing loss, who had 45db hearing loss in left side (operated ear) and underwent stapedotomy and received a good hearing with SRT less than 15. Conclusion: If the patient is selected properly, good result is achieved.
