Re: fracture of the base of the 5th proximal phalanx

What you are describing sounds like one of the symptoms of Osteogenesis imperfecta. You can do a Google search for more information about it. I can not tell you if he has it though. I think a pediatric internal medicine specialist may be the way to start. The heel being warm certainly be due to an injury, but there are other possibilities. Again, I suggest he is evaluated very soon.
