Aim of this paper is to describe and discuss, on the basis of an exhaustive review of literature, the case of a 14-year-old girl with familiar Marfan's syndrome. This disease is a generalized inherited disorder with involvement of connective tissue and symptoms affecting ocular, skeletal and cardio-vascular systems, usually diagnosed in young age and associated with a poor prognosis because of late severe aortic complications (dissection, dilation or aneurysms, regurgitation, etc.). The young patient sought to our medical attention because of severe leanness, delayed menarca and irregular menstruations; physical examination disclosed the typical "morphotype of Marfan" with long limbs, slenderness of hands and feet, severe kyphoscoliosis, narrow chest with "pectus excavatum", marked hyperextensible joints, and high arched palate with malocclusion...

At 20 weeks amenorrhoea, it is currently possible to determine with echocardiography whether a fetal heart, which then weighs approximately 400g with a diameter of 15 mm, is normal or not. The incidence of cardiac malformations has been estimated at 8 per 1000 fetuses. Fetal factors including retarded growth, hydramnios and arrhythmia and maternal factors including rubeola, diabetes, systemic lupus erythematosus, Rhesus incompatibility and drugs increase fetal risk. In certain cardiopathies such as aortic stenosis, coarctation, malformation of the mitral valve or left ventricle hypoplasia, the risk of recurrence in a second fetus is greatly increased...

We describe a family in which two generations are affected: two brothers and one of their maternal uncles. One of their two half-sisters (same mother) is also suspected of having the same cardiopathy. This observation confirms the autosomal dominant transmission of the disease and shows its variable expressivity in the family under study.
