This makes it very important for people with Marfan syndrome and related disorders to receive accurate, early diagnosis and treatment. Without it, they can be at risk for potentially life-threatening complications. The earlier some treatments are started, the better the outcomes are likely to be.
Knowing the signs of Marfan syndrome can save lives. Our community of experts estimates that nearly half the people who have Marfan syndrome don’t know it. This is something we are working hard to change.
Aunque los síntomas del síndrome de Tourette son involuntarios, algunas personas a veces pueden reprimir, encubrir o manejar sus tics de distintas maneras con el fin de minimizar el impacto que producen sobre sus actividades. Sin embargo, algunas personas con el síndrome de Tourette indican que sufren un notable aumento de tensión al reprimir sus tics, hasta el punto que sienten que el tic debe expresarse. Los tics provocados por una causa ambiental pueden parecer voluntarios o deliberados pero no lo son.
People with Marfan syndrome are born with it, but features of the disorder are not always present right away. Some people have a lot of Marfan features at birth or as young children – including serious conditions like aortic enlargement. Others have fewer features when they are young and don’t develop aortic enlargement or other signs of Marfan syndrome until they are adults. Some features of Marfan syndrome, like those affecting the heart and blood vessels, bones or joints, can get worse over time.
