WCUI Marfans Syndrome and Aneurysm Discussion

I’m working on a health & medical discussion question and need support to help me learn.

Two connective tissue disorders associated with increased risk for aneurysm are Marfan’s Syndrome and Ehler-Danlos Syndrome. For this post, choose one of the two and do some quick research to help expand the knowledge of the group. Include the following:

  • Description of the physical characteristics associated with the syndrome that may be observed or disclosed during a patient history.
  • Explain in your own words, how the syndrome contributes to increased risk of an aneurysm.
