    Hi, the_uk_dude - Welcome from me too. I have a little understanding of pseudoxanthoma elasticum in that it's an inherited connective tissue disorder like mine. I've got the hypermobile type of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. My son & I also share some features of Marfan syndrome. I also have some features of PXE. There does seem to be some overlap in some of these connective tissue disorders!
    Please look around, & join in any discussions. Thank you for wanting to help; so much appreciated. I look forward to seeing you around.
