what's transmission of eds?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Ricardo Alvillar
42 years experience Rheumatology
Genetic: The only common form of eds is type iii. This is because afflicted individuals rarely reach childhood; and, certainly not adulthood. Eds iii is an autosomally dominant gene which means that 50% of children of the affected person will have the disease; or each child has a 50% risk of developing the disease.
