Oral Manifestations of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome
Yves Létourneau, DMD •
Rénald Pérusse, DMD, MD •
Hélène Buithieu, DMD, MSD • Abstract Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a rare hereditary disease of the connective tissue which can present oral manifestations. A brief history of the disease is presented along with the epidemiology and characteristics of the 8 main phenotypes of the syndrome. The article also describes the case of a 12-year-old patient presenting with hypermobility of the temporo-mandibular joint and capillary fragility, and highlights the precautions to take when treating patients with this syndrome.

E hlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is a hereditary collagen disease presenting primarily as dermatological and joint disorders. The first description of the syndrome in the literature was of a young Spaniard who was able to stretch the skin overlying his right pectoral muscle over to the left angle of his mandible. In 1901, Ehlers described the condition as a hyperelasticity of the skin and a strong tendency to bruising. In 1908, Danlos introduced the idea that the condition represented a pseudo-tumour of a molluscoid or fibrous type. It was not until 1934 that Pommeau-Delille and Soussie described the condition as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. Other evocative terms such as “elastic man” (or woman) or “India rubber man” have been used.

    What is Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome?
    Individuals with EDS have a defect in their connective tissue, the tissue which provides support to many body parts such as the skin, muscles and ligaments. The fragile skin and unstable joints found in EDS are the result of faulty collagen. Collagen is a protein which acts as a "glue" in the body, adding strength and elasticity to connective tissue.
    Ehlers–Danlos syndrome (EDS) is a heterogeneous group of heritable connective tissue disorders, characterized by articular(joint) hypermobility, skin extensibility and tissue fragility.There are six major types of EDS. The different types of EDS are classified according to their manifestations of signs and symptoms.Each type of EDS is a distinct disorder that "runs true"in a family. This means that an individual with Vascular Type EDS will not have a child with Classical Type EDS.
    Clinical manifestations of EDS are most often joint and skin related and may include: Joints : joint hypermobility; loose/unstable joints which are prone to frequent dislocations and/or subluxations; joint pain; hyperextensible joints (they move beyond the joint's normal range); early onset of osteoarthritis.

    is a branch of the Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation . We provide support for individuals and families from Michigan and Indiana with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is a group of genetic connective tissue disorders, characterized by joint hypermobility, skin extensibility, and tissue fragility. Individuals with EDS have a defect in their connective tissue, the tissue which provides support to many body parts such as the skin, muscles, ligaments, blood vessels, and internal organs. The fragile tissues and unstable joints found in EDS are the result of faulty collagen. Collagen is a protein that acts as a "glue" in the body, adding strength and elasticity to connective tissue. For further information about EDS, you can find many articles and informative websites through the links page. Our branch is based in South Bend, Indiana, five miles south of the Michigan border. We have several meetings each year, which give us an opportunity to get to know others with EDS, and learn from each other about living with EDS. We also participate in events to educate our community about EDS, and we have fund-raisers to help support our local branch, as well as the EDNF as a whole. Children are always welcome at our meetings. Michiana EDNF Officers meet them!

    Contents of this page: Definition Ehlers-Danos syndrome is a group of inherited disorders characterized by excessive looseness (laxity) of the joints, hyperelastic skin that is fragile and bruises easily, and/or easily damaged blood vessels. The syndrome sometimes involves rupture of internal organs. There are six major types that are characterized by distinctive features. Causes, incidence, and risk factors Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) can occur in different forms involving blood vessels, skin, and/or joints with a variety of different genetic defects as their cause. A variety of genetic mutations cause abnormality in collagen. Collagen provides structure and strength to connective tissue in skin, bone, blood vessels, and internal organs. Different forms of EDS have different modes of inheritance. Family history is a risk factor in some cases. Incidence is 1 in 400,000 in the USA.

    What Is It? Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (A-lerz-DAN-los SIN-drome) describes a group of hereditary disorders which mainly affect the skin and joints, but may affect other organs. EDS affects the connective tissues the tissues that support various parts of the body such as skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. In EDS, the fibrous protein collagen is faulty, causing the connective tissue to not be elastic or strong. What Are the Symptoms? There are 9 types of EDS and symptoms differ depending on the type of EDS. Type I and III have the following:
    • Skin problems, include fragile skin that bruises or tears; soft skin, and slow-healing wounds. Joint problems, including loose, unstable joints; "double-jointed" or overextension of the joints; arthritis-like problems.

    This site is dedicated to providing information and support for people with both joint hypermobility (including Ehlers-Danlos and Benign Joint Hypermobility Syndromes, or any form of Hypermobility Syndrome) and Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (aka Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome, or Myalgic Encephalopathy in the U.K. and Australia). It is the first of its kind and provides information on these conditions, and also links to many sites with much more detailed information. It's important to note that this is an amateur site, not an official local, national or international support or information group. Hopefully, however, small individual endeavours like this will pave the way for such official groups to emerge. In addition, the Hypermobility & Fibromyalgia Group (hm-ed-fm) is the only discussion/support group online for people with both of these conditions. All are welcome!
