March 29, 2019

This report evaluates the clinical utility of genetic testing for Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) in patients with joint hypermobility, skin hyperextensibility, and/or tissue fragility. This report will focus on the classical subtype, as well as rare EDS subtypes (which are classical-like EDS, cardiac-valvular EDS, arthrochalasia EDS, dermatosparaxis EDS, kyphoscoliotic EDS, brittle cornea syndrome, spondylodysplastic EDS, musculocontractural EDS, myopathic EDS, and periodontal EDS).
