Although catastrophic vascular complications in vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) are well recognized, other complications such as flexion contractures and tendon nodules are rarely reported and poorly characterized. We report a young man with vascular EDS, who developed flexion contractures and tendon nodules, causing considerable disability. Limited management strategies are available for these complications, which have continued to prove a challenge to management.
