Loeys-Dietz syndrome

Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS) is a genetic disorder of connective tissue that was identified and named in 2005.  At that time doctors realized that even though LDS has some features of other connective tissue disorders, it is a distinct disorder.  The other disorders that share features with LDS include Marfan syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome vascular type, and Shprintzen-Goldberg syndrome.
