A case report is presented of an 18-year-old white girl with generalized normolipemic plane xanthoma and the major features of the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. We believe this is the first report of this extremely rare form of xanthomatosis in association with the textural abnormalities of the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
