Do gastrointestinal issues/problems occur with EDS?
This is based on the individuals and how the defective connective
tissue (collagen) presents. Those with EDS can have manifestations from
mouth to anus, some of which are benign, and others can be lethal.
Differential diagnoses should always be broad, and treatment must take
into consideration not only the known complications of EDS but also the
propensity of the paticular patient to manifest them. (Solomon.et.al Am
J Gastro; 1996; 91, (11):2282-2288)
