Marfan’s – on one hand, its a long story…

Yes, I am aware I should be sedated for that pun,

Check out this case report by the Journal of Accident and Emergency Medicine 1994 on Congestive cardiac failure and aortic dissection in a young man with Marfan’s syndrome: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1342461/pdf/jaccidem00004-0053.pdf

Also check out my favorite educational site: Wikipedia!  (I know, but at least I’ll admit to it!) for more info on Marfan’s syndrome!

So be sure to keep an eye out for marfan-oid signs in patients who present with cardiac complaints.
