Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is a group of heritable connective tissue disorders affecting about 1 in 5,000 – 10,000. It is characterized by (joint) hypermobility, skin extensibility (stretchy skin) and tissue fragility (scaring & bruising).


It is caused by faulty collagens. Collagens provide structure and strength to connective tissue throughout the body. Type III collagen is mostly found in skin, blood vessels, and internal organs.

There are six major types of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. The different types of EDS are classified according to their manifestations of signs and symptoms.
 
Many EDS patients have so many signs and symptoms, it makes it hard for a doctor to diagnose this disorder.
 
There is no cure and no treatments for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
