Marfan’s syndrome: case report and literature review

  • PW Atipo-Tsiba

Abstract

Marfan’s syndrome is a rare genetic disease, autosomal dominant. The most affected organs are eyes (myopia, subluxation of the lens); skeleton (hyperlaxity, arachnodactyly, scoliosis, dolichostenomelia) and cardiovascular system (aortic pathology). The severity of this disease is related to its cardiovascular damage. We proposed to carry out a review of the literature from the first case reported in the ophthalmology department of the University Hospital of Brazzaville.
