The American Board of Pediatrics shows you the image below.

QUESTIONS:

  1. What disorders might this guy have been diagnosed with as a child?
  2. What are some other findings you might see in someone with this disorder?

Loose Stretchy Skin

ANSWERS:

  1. 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.
  2. 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!”
