Marfan syndrome is an inherited congenital disorder affecting the connective tissue of the heart, eye, bone and other organs. Connective tissue provides the structural support and helps to maintain the elasticity of the ligaments, skeletal structures, blood vessel walls and the heart valves. Marfan syndrome can occur as an inherited disorder (75% of the cases) or as a result of new mutation (25% of the cases).
