Marfan syndrome - symptoms and how to test
Connective tissue, which helps hold the body and its organs together, is negatively affected by the genetic disorder known as Marfan syndrome. Marfan syndrome is a disorder that occurs equally across sexes and all racial and ethnic groupings. The arteries, heart, eyes, skin, lungs, hip, spine, foot, and rib bones are all susceptible to damage from Marfan syndrome. Due to its hereditary nature, having a parent with Marfan syndrome is the most critical risk factor. Marfan syndrome can also be detected using amniocentesis. An amniotic fluid screening is a test performed between weeks 16 and 18 of pregnancy. Amniotic fluid is the fluid that surrounds the baby in the womb.
