In brief: Tends to be "mild"

Most cases and types of eds have fragile skin and joint dislocation as the worst consequenses.
However the vascular type can be devestating with spontaneously rupturing blood vessels in multiple organs causing bleeding or bowel rupture. Eds can be confirmed by genetic testing and typed by skin biopsy.
