HMSA Statement of Position on 2017 International Criteria for Ehlers-Danlos syndromes

Posted By FLICK MCLUCKIE, February 21, 2017

This document was prepared on Monday 20th February following requests from our members. It aims to address issues, and ease anxieties raised by the early and partial release of documents from the International Consortium and the FAQ that followed.

When the full nosology documents are released on March 15th a clearer picture will be available to everyone, in the meantime we’ve provided as much information and explanation as we’re able to. The HMSA stands for and with ALL people with hypermobility syndromes and will continue to do so.
