Abstract

A young girl with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome had evidence of multiple severe peripheral pulmonary artery stenoses and of tortuosity of the aorta and its major thoracic divisions, including the coronary arteries. It appears likely that the basic defect of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome may involve many arteries and may cause important vasular obstruction.
