So I'm reading First Aid and it says that Type V collagen is deficient in Classic Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. But in the page on Collagen there are only 4 types of collagen listed? So what type of collagen is deficient in Classic Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome?

lol. you really need to study. Assuming you're MS-1?

FA is the very least of what you need to know. This should put it in perspective. We've had the various genes associated come up on tests as well.

Another way to remember collagen deficiencies is via "SCAB":

Type 1 - Skin
Type 2 - Connective Tissue
Type 3 - Arteries
Type 4 - Basement membrane

You can logic it out that's it type 3, because they have problems with arterial rupture and possible rupture of their ascending aorta.

If I was just looking at the classifications by type and didn't know the deficiency, I would guess it would be type 1, since the classical sign is stretchy skin, but alas, I'd be wrong.

Also some what related with collagen deficiency disorders, they can ask a tricky type of question like a problem with the aqueous humor. That would be considered a type 2 "connective tissue" problem.
