Ehlers-danlos Syndrome Type 2

Description

The Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) are a group of heritable connective tissue disorders that share the common features of skin hyperextensibility, articular hypermobility, and tissue fragility. The main features of classic Ehlers-Danlos syndrome are loose-jointedness and fragile, bruisable skin that heals with peculiar 'cigarette-paper' scars (Beighton, 1993). There are both severe and mild forms of classic EDS, previously designated EDS I and EDS II, respectively.For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of classic EDS, see {130000}.
