There are intimate interrelations between various elements of connective tissue, viz. collagen, elastin, and glycoproteins. It is not unexpected that Marfan and Ehlers-Danlos syndromes share common features. The condition is labelled as Marfanoid hypermobility syndrome. In the patient described here, the Marfanoid hypermobility syndrome was associated with coarctation of the aorta which was corrected surgically.
