authors: Tan PW, Song C, Lalonde D


Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is a hereditary connective tissue disorder caused by abnormal collagen synthesis and presents with classic features of hyperextensibility, fragility of skin and joint hypermobility. It has not been commonly described as being associated with cleft lip and/or palate, and a literature search has disclosed only one case (1984) of type IV EDS with cleft lip and palate. The authors have seen another case of EDS associated with cleft lip and palate. The etiology and clinical features of this syndrome are discussed alongside the clinical picture of cleft lip and palate.
