Case Study and Clinical Highlight: Management of Pregnancy in Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome

Patients with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) should be cared for by a team of specialized healthcare providers to facilitate individualized care, which is especially important in the setting of pregnancy, which is considered high risk in EDS. Rheumatologists can provide valuable input, including assessment of joint laxity, providing analgesia for joint pain, and coordinating care to ensure maximum joint protection and function. Engage in this case study to review the management of EDS in pregnancy and to take a knowledge assessment.
