Pathology

In brief: Usually none

The diagnosis is usually made on physical examination.
Since it's not something that can be treated with a pill, there's seldom any need to find the exact gene responsible (and there are many different ones that can do it). For the very severe vascular form, a geneticist may confirm this, before or after birth. I know several docs with e-d. Good luck.
