As early as the 1970s, the life expectancy of a person with Marfan syndrome was two-thirds that of a person without the disease. However, with improvements in recognition and treatment, people with Marfan syndrome now have a life expectancy similar to that of the average person. This disease may not have cure but it does not stop a person from living life to the fullest extent with proper medical care and timely checkups. Keyword: marfan disease life expectancy
