In brief: Yes.
There definitely is an association between pectus excavatum patients and a thin body habitus as well marfan's syndrome and marfanoid characteristics.

Have seen pectus excavatum in skinny patients as well as in pts with more muscular builds.
Have not really seen pectus excavatum in marphanoid pts.
