Not well known: The inheritance pattern is variable. In the more common eds type3 (hypermobility type), the inheritance is autosomal dominant meaning 50% of offspring would be expected to have it.

Unlikely.: Ehlers danlos is an inherited condition, so if it doesn't run in your family, it's very unlikely that you have it.

Probably easiest way to diagnose is with ultrasound or ct with contrast. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

EDS typically affects the joints, skin, and blood vessels as well as the physical strength of skin, joints, muscles, ligaments, blood vessels and visceral organs. ...Read more

Different areas: Collagen vascular diseases or multi-system diseases are just that. They are a group of diseases characterized by autoimmune aberrations. Varied organ systems can be involved - skin, joints or any internal organs - heart, kidneys, blood or nervous system. The way a disease presents itself depends on which areas are involved.
