Abstract

Dear Editor, An 18-year-old man with Marfan syndrome (MFS) fainted after experiencing retrosternal pain and was brought to the emergency department. Conscious upon admission, he reported that he had been experiencing this pain intermittently (but not so intensely) for approximately 2 months while feeling debilitated. MFS had been diagnosed during infancy due to skeletal abnormalities, subluxation of the lenses and positive family history.
