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.

In brief: Not necessarily

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.
