To date, six underlying types of disease have been identified and are categorised as follows: classical (formerly type I/II), hypermobility (formerly type III), vascular (formerly type IV), kyphoscoliosis (formerly type VI), arthrochalasia (formerly type VIIA/VIIB), and dermatosparaxis (formerly type VIIC) [1].
The various types include--classic; hypermobility; vascular; kyphoscoliosis; arthrochalasia; and dermatosparaxis.
Although well defined, the kyphoscoliosis, arthrochalasia, and dermatosparaxis types are con-siderably less common than the classical, hypermobility, and arterial types of EDS.
