Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Service

Ehlers-Danlos information

Welcome to our Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Service where we diagnose children and adults with suspected complex EDS throughout the country.

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is a group of inherited disorders where skin, joints, blood vessels and hollow organs can be affected as a result of underlying defects in connective tissue.

Several major types are identified including classical, hypermobile, vascular, kyphoscoliotic, arthrochalasic and dermatosparactic EDS.

In its mildest form symptoms can be limited to hypermobile joints, but in the more severe forms it can be disabling and even life threatening.

Making a diagnosis of EDS can be difficult and this is the reason a specialist service is needed.
