X-linked Mental Retardation With Marfanoid Habitus: A Changing Phenotype With Age?

J P Fryns et al. Genet Couns.

Abstract

In this report, we present two further examples of X-linked mental retardation with Marfanoid habitus. Follow-up data on these two patients reveal that the clinical diagnosis of this syndrome is extremely difficult, if not impossible before puberty, as the Marfanoid habitus only becomes strikingly evident during adolescence.
