Genetic Causes of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome

The primary cause of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome is a genetic mutation that affects the production of collagen in the body. Collagen is essential for providing strength and support to various tissues and organs, and any abnormalities in its production can lead to the characteristic features of EDS. The condition can be inherited from a parent who carries the genetic mutation, and in some cases, the mutation can occur spontaneously. Additionally, there are several subtypes of EDS, each caused by mutations in different genes that are involved in the production of collagen. These genetic mutations can result in a wide range of symptoms and severity of the condition.
