Dr. Kathryn Riordan
Rheumatology 38 years experience
Yes: Some less common forms of eds can be associated with intestinal rupture, blood vessel rupture, eye damage and pregnancy related complications.
Dr. Alan Solinger
Rheumatology 47 years experience
Not common: It depends on the subtype of ehlors-danlos syndrome, but not a common feature except in the most severe subtypes with excessive tissue tears without much trauma. Speak with york physician to see if you have any of those subtypes.
