Biochemistry Collagen Type in Ehler's Danlos Syndrome

I'm confused about a note on FA about Ehler's Danlos syndrome, it states " type 1 or type 5 collagen most frequently affected in severe classic Ehler's Danlos syndrome" on the errata doc it states change it to " it might be confused with Marfan syndrome" I thought collagen type III is frequently affected?? Any suggestions
