The Name…..

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is named after Dr. Edvard Ehlers, a Danish dermatologist (1863–1937) and Dr. Henri-Alexandre Danlos, a French dermatologist (1844–1912). These two physicians combined the patient features of the condition and accurately delivered the phenotype of EDS.

In 1936 an English physician, Dr. Frederick Parkes-Weber suggested to name tins inherited genetic disorder as ‘Ehlers-Danlos syndrome’ (EDS).
