You did a really good job on illustrating how in marfan’s syndrome that the bones elongate and affect the connective tissue in your body. I did some research on what marfan’s syndrome is exactly and that it is an inherited disorder that affects the connective tissue and commonly affects the heart, eyes, blood vessels and skeleton. Marfan’s syndrome directly affects the connective tissue changing proteins to help the connective tissue to maintain it being healthy. Your project is clearly on how the bones can become longer due to marfan’s syndrome and also on how they become more narrow than usual. Your objective to this project is having to do with connective tissues and their importance, and also how diseases towards the connective tissue can transform your body. Connective tissue provides strength and flexibility and is used to anchor your organs and bones to structures in your body. Marfan syndrome can be very bad for your skeletal system because if you have it all over your body and you also have scoliosis or abnormal body and also have Marfan’s syndrome, it will elongate the curvatures in your body, causing severe pain, making you very uncomfortable and unable to do things. People with Marfan’s syndrome usually also have very loose joints, and stretch marks from not losing or gaining weight but the fact that they have abnormally long bones. People with Marfan’s syndrome usually get it between their childhood and adulthood. The ones that start acquiring it during infancy can be very fatal.
