• We report an unusual insight into the impact of an inherited skin disorder on persons and their families through a child abuse evaluation that was concluded by the diagnosis of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) in a 6-year-old girl. To our knowledge, no similar case has been reported in the literature, although other such cases of confusion in diagnosis have been confirmed.
