Benign joint hypermobility syndrome (BJHS) is a connective tissue disorder with hypermobility, in which musculoskeletal symptoms occur in the absence of systemic rheumatologic disease. It is an inherited connective tissue disorder and is different from other genetic connective tissue disorders such as Marfan's and Ehler-Danlos syndromes that also cause joint hypermobility and generalized joint laxity. We are reporting three cases of BJHS for the first time from Manipur, who presented with nonspecific symptoms and arthralgias.
