The dermatological aspects of hEDS in women.

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is a group of inherited connective tissue disorders that may present with a wide range of multisystemic symptoms. Hypermobile EDS, one of 13 identified subtypes of EDS, is the only variant without a known associated genetic mutation. A review of the literature suggests the five primary dermatological changes associated with hypermobile EDS are soft skin, atrophic cutaneous scars, piezogenic papules, hyperextensive stretchability, and hematomas. Our paper will address these cutaneous manifestations and delve into how they affect patients (primarily women). Possible consequences and treatment options for these different dermatological changes, as well as other skin manifestations such as livedo reticularis and elastosis perforans serpiginosa, will also be further explored.
