How is Ehlers-Danlos syndrome inherited?

The inheritance pattern of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome varies by type. The arthrochalasia, classic, hypermobility, and vascular forms of the disorder usually have an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance.[1] Click here to learn more about autosomal dominant inheritance.

The dermatosparaxis and kyphoscoliosis types of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, and some cases of the classic and hypermobility forms, are inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern.[1] Click here to learn more about autosomal recessive inhreitance.
