Every patient’s experience with Marfan syndrome is slightly different. One cannot have every symptom and people have different combinations of symptoms. Following are signs easier to see than others:
  • Long arms, legs and fingers
  • Tall and thin body type
  • Curved spine
  • Chest sinks in or sticks out
  • Flexible joints
  • Flat feet
  • Crowded teeth
  • Stretch marks on the skin that are not related to weight gain or loss
There are also signs harder to detect, including:
  • Heart problems, especially those related to the aorta and the large blood vessel;
  • Sudden lung collapse and eye problems, including severe nearsightedness, dislocated lens, detached retina, early glaucoma, and early cataracts.
Get your signs tested by a doctor so that you can get timely and targeted treatment. Keywords: marfan syndrome signs; marfan syndrome symptoms signs; signs marfan syndrome; signs symptoms marfan syndrome
