A cutaneous metaplastic synovial cyst is a rare entity that is probably caused by trauma or surgery. We report the second case of cutaneous metaplastic synovial cyst in a child with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. His father is also affected with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, and his diagnosis is substantiated by the demonstration of reduced synthesis of collagen type V.
