Abstract

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a rare genetically determined disorder of connective tissue. Such patients often present challenges in clinical diagnosis and management. Dramatic life-threatening presentations include gastrointestinal perforation and vascular rupture, both occurring in the patient described. This case illustrates diagnostic features and therapeutic maneuvers important in the management of such complications of this disorder.
