Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a frequent hereditary disease that affects all the connective tissue and is transmitted to all the children of an affected person. A diagnosis is possible, from birth, or shortly thereafter, when observing a clubfoot, hip dislocation, intestinal intussusception, acute umbilical or inguinal parietal hernia, hemorrhages [cutaneous, oral, gastric, intestinal, nasal], persistent constipation, regurgitation and vomiting during bottle-feeding, or false roads. These symptoms are often the cause of false allegations of abuse with children withdrawal and wrongful parents or false accusations of Munchausen disease “by delegation” in a parent, the mother most often.
