Abstract

Two cases of subluxation of the carpometacarpal joint of the thumb in children with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome are presented. Although hand involvement is not universally appreciated, the carpometacarpal joint of the thumb may be particularly susceptible to weakened ligamentous constraints in Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
