Abstract

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a heterogeneous group of inherited generalized connective tissue disorders characterized by hyperextensibility and fragility of skin, joint hepermobility, abnormal scarring, easy bruisibility, visceral and neurological manifestations. It is classified into 10 different major subtypes based on genetic, biochemical, and clinical characteristics. We report a case of type II Ehlers-Danlos syndrome in a 19-year-old male who showed soft and velvety skin with marked hyperextensibility, thin atrophic scarring from trauma, and hypermobile finger joints.
