In brief: Yes

Osteogenesis imperfecta, or oi for short, is caused by genetic mutations of certain collagen genes.
There are a number of types, and the severity can range from lethal shortly after birth to quite mild. Bone fractures, sometimes dental problems, and sometimes hearing loss can occur. The oi foundation is a great source of information: http://www.Oif.Org/site/pageserver.
