In brief: Can be cryptic

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.

In brief: possibly

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