What Is Marfan Syndrome?

Marfan syndrome is a genetic connective tissue condition. It would affect the usual development of the body because connective tissue plays a key role in supporting the skeletal structure and other body parts. In addition, the disorder can cause many health issues with your heart, eyes, skin, and other organs. People of all genders, races, and ages can be at risk. It can be characterized by some clear physical features like loose joints, flat feet, tall posture, and disproportionately long fingers. [1]
