describes the complexity of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome
. Likening it to the mythological creature of the hydra, Dr. Saggar cautions that EDS can have "many heads." It can affect individuals in vastly different ways.
Dr. Saggar goes on to explain just how common connective tissue disorders can be in patients with other disorders and even in the general population. He emphasizes the importance of genetic testing to confirm diagnoses of connective tissue disorders.
