A 26-year-old male patient was admitted to our outpatient clinic with complaints of numbness and weakness in his left arm and leg. These complaints had started about 10 days ago and were continuing. From his personal history, it was found out that he had been followed up with the diagnosis of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) hypermobile type for 10 years, and that he had had low vision in his left eye lasting for 15 days, but he had not consulted a physician for this complaint. After 1 year had passed from the complaint of blurred vision, he had had a weakness in his right arm and loss of balance, but again he had not sought medical advice. From his familial history, it was found out that his paternal grandmother, father, aunt, cousins, and younger sister were being followed up with the diagnosis of EDS. General physical examination revealed no pathological features except for several atrophic cicatrices on the face, back, and arms and hyperflexibility of the joints. No cardiologic or ophthalmologic involvement was detected in terms of EDS.
