Abstract

A 36-year-old man who was diagnosed to have the Marfan syndrome with an XYY chromosome pattern is reported. He was tall with long limbs and arachnodactylia, and had severe aortic regurgitation (AR). The chromosome pattern studied in specimens of blood and bone marrow revealed an XYY chromosome pattern. The relationship between the Marfan syndrome and an XYY chromosome pattern is discussed.
