Article
Background: Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (hEDS) is the most frequent heritable disorder of the connective tissue. This is characterized by a generalized fragility of tissues leading to chronic pain, disability and high levels of psychological distress. Suicidal behaviors in those affected are not uncommon but they have not been well studied....
Article
Ehlers-Danlos is a hereditary disease of the whole connective tissue initially described by dermatologists (Tscherchnogobov Moscow 1892, Ehlers, Copenhagen, 1900, Danlos, Paris, 1908). They emphasized the joint hyperlaxity and stretchiness of the skin which has long summed up the clinical expression of this entity. In recent decades, many other man...

Background: Compression garments (CGs) are an adjuvant treatment for generalized joint hypermobility (GJH), including the Ehlers–Danlos syndrome/hypermobility types. The effects of CGs are likely to be related to better proprioceptive control. We aimed to explore the use of CGs in individuals with autism and severe proprioceptive dysfunction (SPD),...
Article
Introduction Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is an heritable collagen disorder with various multisystemic clinical manifestations affecting primarily skin, ligaments and joints, blood vessels and internal organs. The clinical spectrum is very large from mild skin and joint hypermobility to severe physical disability. Patients with Ehlers-Danlos syndro...
Article
Aim: Among the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes, the hypermobile subtype (hEDS) is the most common. The variety, accumulation and duration of the painful symptoms make hEDS a chronic and highly disabling condition. Identifying drivers of pain and mobility disability in hEDS is necessary to provide adapted prevention and intervention programmes. Methods: A c...
Article
Le syndrome d’Ehlers-Danlos est une maladie héréditaire systémique du tissu conjonctif très largement méconnue, malgré une incidence de 2 % en France et 3 % en Belgique, car mal décrite et sans test génétique probant. Son diagnostic est pourtant facile sur un regroupement de signes cliniques avec une sensibilité de 96,6 % et une spécificité de 98 %...

Full-text available
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Joint Hypermobility-Related Disorders are blanket terms for two etiologically and clinically heterogeneous groups of pathologies that usually appears in childhood. These conditions are seen by different medical fields, such as psychiatry in the case of ASD, and musculoskeletal disciplines and genetics in the case...

Introduction/Objective: Despite the frequent co-ocurrence of hypermobile Ehler-Danlos syndrome (hEDS) and pathological anxiety, little is known about the psychosocial and health implications of such comorbidity. Our aim was to explore the association between high levels of anxiety and psychosocial (catastrophizing, kinesiophobia, somatosensory ampl...

Article
Background: Shoulder dislocation is often the first symptom of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS). Whether it occurs in early-onset EDS is unknown. In most cases, surgical failure leads to the diagnosis. We aimed to determine whether clinical symptoms can signal the presence of EDS at a first dislocation. Materials and methods: In this retrospective s...
Article
Patient, disease, medicine and disability form a homogeneous container which interactions receive constantly important updates. They are influenced by the development of new technical aides used for diagnoses and treatments. One of the negative results of this process is the downgrading of clinic and of the role played by a close relationship with...
Article
Extract: ...Twenty-eight patients (mean age = 36.1, SD = 13) and 21 healthy women (mean age = 33.6, SD = 9.3) were enrolled at the time of preliminary data presentation. The groups did not differ in terms of age and years of education (Table 1). A significantly higher proportion of women with cognitive impairment was observed in the patients group...

Chronic pain in the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) is common and may be severe. According to one study, nearly 90% of patients report some form of chronic pain. Pain, which is often one of the first symptoms to occur, may be widespread or localized to one region such as an arm or a leg. Studies on treatment modalities are few and insufficient to gui...

Full-text available
Despite its high frequency, Ehlers-Danlos disease remains practically unknown to doctors who evoke many other diagnoses with dangerous therapeutic and social consequences. These diagnoses primarily include mental disorders that sometimes lead to hospitalizations in psychiatry. Progression of the disease’s clinical knowledge allows for a diagnosis o...

Background The role of physical trauma in the onset of symptoms in Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) has never been characterized. We sought to search and describe brain lesions EDS patients also having personal history of physical trauma. We systematically performed brain magnetic resonance imaging in a first cohort of patients with a hypermobility typ...

Background Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (hEDS), is probably the most common disease among heritable connective tissue disorders. It affects women more than men and causes symptoms in multiple organs. It is associated with chronic pain, skin fragility and abnormal bleeding. These characteristics may hamper reproductive life. We conducted a stu...
Article
Introduction La chirurgie de l’instabilité de l’épaule chez le patient Ehlers Danlos (SED) aboutit souvent à un échec. Il n’est pas facile lors d’un premier épisode de luxation de savoir si celui-ci se fait sur un terrain à risque lorsque le diagnostic initial se SED n’est pas encore fait. Pouvoir identifier les éléments très évocateurs de SED perm...

En este trabajo se describen une serie de problemas cognitivos frecuentemente presentados por los pacientes que sufren del síndrome de Ehlers-Danlos (SED). La experiencia clínica en la evaluación neuropsicológica de las funciones superiores generales, nos ha permitido revelar un cierto numero de trastornos funcionales en esta área que incluyen prin...
Article
Résumé L’absence de marqueur biologique spécifique fait qu’actuellement le diagnostic de syndrome ou maladie d’Ehlers-Danlos repose sur les seuls critères cliniques. Parmi ceux-ci, une place prépondérante et excessive a été faite à l’hypermobilité articulaire. Elle est communément mesurée par le test de Beighton en 9 points. Un des points est obten...

Joint Hypermobility Syndrome, also known as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Hypermobility Type (JHS/EDS-HT), is a heritable disorder of connective tissue, common but poorly known by the medical community. Although generalized joint hypermobility and fragility of tissues have been described as core features, recent research highlights the multisystemic natur...
Article
Le syndrome d’Ehlers-Danlos (SED) apparaît aujourd’hui comme une maladie héréditaire systémique du collagène responsable d’une diminution de la résistance et de modifications de la réactivité du tissu conjonctif. Cette maladie, malgré sa fréquence élevée, 135 ans après ses premières descriptions, n’est jamais diagnostiquée ou très tardivement par i...

Résumé Depuis 17 ans, nous suivons une cohorte patients atteints d’une maladie d’Ehlers-Danlos de type III répondant aux critères de Brighton (Grahame) et de Villefranche (Beighton). Ils sont maintenant 2350. Les manifestations cliniques observées, plus sévères chez les femmes, sont l’expression d’un syndrome de fragilités tissulaires et de désordr...
Article
La physiopathologie respiratoire et l’oxygénation ont une place très importante dans la symptomatologie et les traitements du syndrome d’Ehlers-Danlos. Cet aspect était négligé et même oublié dans les descriptions initiales dominées par l’hypermobilité articulaire et l’étirabilité de la peau. Les données présentées ici sont extraites de l’étude d’u...

Ehlers-Danlos disease had a paradoxical fate. Clinically identified 123 years ago, it is unknown to nearly all present doctors. Often described for its dramatic aspects, diagnostic confusion with fibromyalgia in particular, ignorance of effective treatments such as oxygen therapy and orthotics are new concepts that should shake the prejudices deriv...
Article
Résumé Cette maladie génétique, pourtant fréquente, reste ignorée de la majorité des médecins qui la confondent avec d’autres affections rhumatologiques, neurologiques, pneumologiques ou psychiatriques avec des effets iatrogéniques très dommageables. Pour répondre aux besoins urgents de connaissances, la faculté de médecine de Créteil (UPEC) a mis...
Article
Résumé La notion de réadaptation, comme celle de handicap, fait l’objet de beaucoup de contresens et de confusions qui nuisent considérablement à la mise en œuvre d’un enjeu social qui dépasse largement les questions de santé. Dans le champ de la médecine, il est cependant essentiel pour l’organisation de la médecine et tout particulièrement de la...

Résumé On assiste à une mondialisation de la question du Handicap qui a créé une nouvelle dynamique dans la façon de considérer les personnes confrontées aux situations de handicap. Le début de cette période est l’année 1981 « Année internationale des personnes handicapées ». La loi française du 11 février 2005 pour « l’égalité des droits et des ch...
Article
Our experience of the EDS disease is based on a cohort of 2300 cases. First descriptions of Dermatologists (Tschernogobow, Ehlers, Danlos, Miget) have strongly oriented the diagnosis on two signs: joint hypermobility and skin stretchability. Therefore hiding other clinical expressions with a much more severe impact on the life of the patients: prop...
Article
Respiratory disorders have an important part of symptomatology in Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, responsible of situations of disability which justify a specifically treatment by acute respiratory rehabilitation, oxygen and percussionnaire.
Article
Le syndrome décrit par Ehlers en 1900 reste encore ignoré de la quasi-totalité des médecins ou bien, est réduit à deux signes importants : l’étirabilité de la peau et l’hypermobilité des articulations. Les symptômes majeurs responsables de la plupart des situations de handicap chez ces patients sont absents des classifications réalisées par les gén...

Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) are a heterogeneous group of heritable connective tissue disorders. Gastrointestinal manifestations in EDS have been described but their frequency, nature and impact are poorly known. We aimed to assess digestive features in a national cohort of EDS patients. A questionnaire has been sent to 212 EDS patients through th...
Article
Walking disorders in Ehlers-Danlos syndrome are very disabling, limiting social life and favouring exclusion from school and education. They are due to proprioceptive disorders, to pain and weariness and, as we have sometimes observed, they are due to dystonia. They are wrongly and too often considered to have a psychopathological origin. When we m...
Article
Les douleurs figurent parmi les « maîtres symptômes » du syndrome d’Ehlers-Danlos qui contribuent à un diagnostic strictement clinique en l’absence d’identification du gène. Elles sont aussi, avec la fatigue, l’une des principales causes de limitation fonctionnelle et de situations de handicap. Pourtant, la méconnaissance généralisée du syndrome fa...
Article
Disability is the poor relation of the research probably because of the dual approach on health and society is required. The global phenomenon is especially to misinterpret the definition, compounded by language problems of translation. Based on the National Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (United Nations, 2006), international...
Article
The development of medicine is increasingly based on biology and medical imaging keeps the doctor away from the bedside. In addition, both doctors and patients believe less and less in clinical medicine. This is compounded by poor application of evidence-based medicine and leads to give probative value to biological tests and, in particular, geneti...
Article
The Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, genetic disorder of connective tissue, remains virtually unknown to the practitioners. It follows a number of diagnostic errors prejudicial to these fragile patients, vulnerable to bleeding and tissue damage. One of the diagnoses, often wrongly, is that of fibromyalgia. A survey was conducted on 2600 cases filed by indiv...
Chapter
Les termes «handicap« et «personnes handicapées « sont d’apparition relativement récente puisque l’introduction du mot, d’origine anglaise, «la main dans le chapeau« dans le Dictionnaire de l’Académie française date de 1913 [3]. La question du handicap a toujours buté sur des questions de définition et de concept. Cet état de fait a entretenu une t...
Article
In people with Ehlers-Danlos, three symptoms are particularly disabling: pain (or rather the pain) diffuse, intense and resistant to treatment, fatigue and damage, often severe, of proprioception. Added to dyspnea and impaired cardiac and respiratory control, disconnected oxygen requirements associated with increased effort. We hypothesized that th...
