Multiple Triggering in a Girl With Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome: Case Report

We report a case of multiple triggering associated with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. We postulate that the propensity for tendon degeneration in Ehlers-Danlos syndrome coupled with repetitive microtrauma might lead to fraying of the tendon fibers and, consequently, triggering. Indeed, in our case, debridement of the tendons rather than resection of A1 pulley resulted in a good long-term functional outcome 2 years after surgery.
