Though the Ehler's-Danlos syndrome has a more ancient history than the other genetic disorders of connective tissue, the basic abnormality at a molecular level remains controversial. The present study is a combined biochemical, histological, and chromosomal investigation in four members of a family with Ehler's-Danlos syndrome, a mother and three siblings. They were placed on collagen-free diets for periods of 23 days in 3 patients and 52 days in one patient and the following urinary excretion rates determined daily: hydroxyproline, hexosamine, uronic acid, total nitrogen, creatinine, and uric acid. Daily osmolality measurements were made. Both hydroxyproline and uronic acid excretion
