A 64 year old man, who had been a lifelong cigarette smoker, presented with a nine month history of progressive angina of effort. Hyperextensible skin had been noted since childhood with easy bruising in response to minor trauma. On one occasion at the age of 12 years surgical evacuation of a tibial haematoma was required. In adult life uncomplicated left inguinal herniorrhaphy was performed. Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type 2 had previously been diagnosed on the basis of clinical findings in his mother, two of three siblings, his son and daughter, and one grandchild.
