Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is a rare autosomal dominant condition resulting from a defect in type III procollagen synthesis. This causes the development of severe vascular pathologies, including arterial rupture and pseudoaneurysm formation. We present a case of a young boy previously diagnosed with vascular EDS due to a Gly975Val substitution in the collagen α1(III) chain presenting with a common femoral artery dissection secondary to minimal trauma. This was managed conservatively with serial duplex scans and gentle mobilization. At follow up the patient had returned to normal activities, with MRA and duplex scans showing complete resolution of the dissection.
