Abstract

The Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a congenital anomaly having collagen metabolism with clinical and genetic heterogeneity. It has been classified into ten distinct clinical forms. Urinary bladder diverticula associated with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome appear to be relatively rare and all of the reported cases were male. A 7 years old female patient with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome visited to our hospital because of gross hematuria after blunt trauma to lower abdomen. Markedly distended urinary bladder with diverticulum was found on abdominopelvic computed tomography. Upper tract was unremarkable. We report a 7 years old female patient with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome associated with megabladder and bladder diverticulum.
