Osteogenesis imperfecta, an inherited disease of connective tissue, is associated with anatomic and physiologic abnormalities which make any form of anaesthesia a challenging task for the anaesthesiologist. We report a case of Osteogenesis imperfecta type -IV with severe anatomic deformities, who underwent replacement nailing procedure for periprosthetic fracture of shaft femur under general anaesthesia. We used a proseal LMA in the case, patient suffered a posterior dislocation of right shoulder on repositioning at the end of the surgery.
