Type V collagen is a form of fibrillar[1] collagen associated with classical Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. It is found within the dermal/epidermal junction, placental tissues, as well as in association with tissues containing type I collagen.[2]

Autoimmunity against type V collagen is associated with lung transplant failure.[3][4][5]
