Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Ehlers-Danlos syndrome predisposes to the development of vascular malformations, which may present as life-threatening haemorrhage. This article presents a patient with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome in whom spontaneous rupture of an unusual arteriovenous fistula occurred. This rare diagnosis can be reached through close attention to the history and examination.
