Marfan Syndrome and Other Connective Tissue Disorders

Care for Adults and Children

For More Information

An early diagnosis and comprehensive, expert medical care can be lifesaving for people with connective tissue disorders (CTDs) like Marfan syndrome and Loeys-Dietz syndrome. Because these congenital conditions can affect the heart, brain, eyes, lungs, bones, and other body systems, it is important to seek care from a team of providers who specialize in treating connective tissue disorders. 

Duke specialists in cardiology, surgery, ophthalmology, pulmonology, orthopaedics, neurology, genetics, and more work together to prevent and treat serious complications like aortic aneurysms, collapsed lungs, and vision problems. Our Marfan/CTD care team is experienced in treating both children and adults.
