Multiple neurofibromatosis associated with the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome has been described in two previous case reports. Crowe, Schull, and Neel (1) reported one patient with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome in their extensive studies on neurofibromatosis. Goodman, Levitsky, and Friedman (2) have reported a kindred in which members of four generations exhibited features of the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and three generations were involved by neurofibromatosis, with a total of five individuals manifesting both syndromes.
