Otto Nitschmann

Otto Nitschmann was diagnosed with Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (VEDS) at the age of 30, after he experienced a sudden splenic artery rupture. This event, combined with his hypermobile joints and his dad’s early death from a brain aneurysm, led his rheumatologist to consider VEDS and order a genetic test.
