Abstract

Marfan's syndrome is a hereditary disorder of connective tissue affecting mainly the bones, cardiovascular system and eyes. Women affected by this syndrome who are considering pregnancy are confronted with several problems: a 50% risk of inheritance of the syndrome by their offspring, shortened life expectancy as a parent, and the potential for cardiovascular complications, such as aortic aneurysm and dissection during pregnancy.
