ANSWER For, “Hey loose skin guy, what’s up with you?”
The American Board of Pediatrics shows you the image below.
- What disorders might this guy have been diagnosed with as a child?
- What are some other findings you might see in someone with this disorder?
- He has Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. The loose skin is one of the key differentiating findings to look for if you start thinking along the lines of Marfan Syndrome.
- Easy bruising and poor wound healing are other findings unique to Ehlers Danlos.
MNEMONIC: Ehlers-Dan-Los kind of sounds like, “that FELLER's-DAAMN-LOOSE!”
Does that help? Got any other mnemonic ideas? Make a comment.
