Is Marfan syndrome associated with symptomatic intracranial aneurysms?
J S van den Berg, M Limburg, R C Hennekam,

Marfan syndrome is a heritable disorder of connective tissue caused by a deficiency of the glycoprotein fibrillin. In several publications and neurological textbooks, a relationship between Marfan syndrome and intracranial aneurysms has been assumed.
