Possibly, but there are several forms. Evaluation of vascular health would be reasonable.

Most people who are thin do not have a connective tissue disease (marfan syndrome.) there is a formal diagnostic approach for suspected Marfan syndrome, though, and it is worth reading. Here is a link to a helpful site: http://www.Marfan.Org/expectations/diagnosis.
