Marfan Syndrome

28-year-old Turkish male, 40 kg in weight and 172 cm tall. It was learned/understood from the history that the patient’s elder brother had the same disease and that two other brothers died after birth (unexplained sudden death). Blindness in the left eye (probably ocular features of Marfan Syndrome), long arms and legs, arachnodactyly (pictured below), kyphoscoliosis, pectus excavatum, and severe pes planus (talipes calcaneovalgus) were found to be present in the physical examination.
