No: Blue sclerae are typically associated with Osteogenesis imperfecta, not BJHS. There are extremely rare cases of Ehlers-Danlos (dermatosparaxis type and the described spondylocheirodyplastic form) that also are associated with a blue sclerae, as well as a Marfanoid-like condition called Loeys-Dietz syndrome.
