We present a clinical case of a 63-year old Caucasian man with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome who was admitted with atrial fibrillation and arterial hypertension. We present this not as a cardiological case but instead address the key questions of differential diagnosis, diagnosis criteria, management and improving the patient’s quality of life.
