How do people inherit ehlers-danlos syndrome, vascular type?

How do people inherit ehlers-danlos syndrome, vascular type?

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. Rarer forms like the vascular type is less predictable. If you have a parent who died of aortic dissection, you should be checked yourself with an echocardiogram. ...Read more

What are the differences between Marfan syndrome and ehler-danlos syndrome?

What are the differences between Marfan syndrome and ehler-danlos syndrome?

Some similarities: Ehler-danlos syndrome is a group of disorders, caused by a different mutation than the one that causes marfan syndrome. Some types of ehler-danlos syndrome also have rupture of the aorta as a potential problem. Ehler-danlos patients can have some skeletal features similar to those of marfan patients. ...Read more

Is patellofemoral syndrome typically associated with marfan's syndrome?

Is patellofemoral syndrome typically associated with marfan's syndrome?

PFS can happen: Marfan syndrome patients can get aches and pains in many joints because of the looser ligaments trying to hold the joints together at rest and under physical stress. Patellofemoral syndrome is common in normal, active school-aged children, so it is hard to tell whether or not it occurs more often in marfan syndrome kids. ...Read more
