Abstract [en]

Introduction: The vascular form of Ehlers-Danlos' syndrome (type IV) is a potentially lethal genetic condition because of rupture of major arteries, often in the peri-partum period. Case Report: We report a 31-year-old primipara who died from a rupture of the right subclavian artery. The patient had several symptoms and signs typical of the disease. The rupture occurred during the expulsion-phase of delivery but was recognized only on day 9. Conclusion: Early recognition is crucial to avoid maternal mortality due to this genetic disorder. Once the condition is suspected, the clinical diagnosis is straightforward.
