Abstract

Marfan's syndrome is an inherited connective tissue defect that affects many organs, especially of the musculoskeletal, ophthalmic and cardiovascular systems, and may be associated with some rare conditions. Here, we report the first known case of Marfan's syndrome, combined with situs inversus totalis with dextrocardia and discrete subaortic stenosis and aortic insufficiency in a 22-year-old woman.
