In brief: Genetic link?

I found no specific references to a genetic link between marfan & cutis marmorata other than possibly in a rare form of homo-cystenuria "arising due to cystathionine beta-synthase deficiency, an autosomal recessive disorder that produces increased urinary homocysteine and methionine.

…It manifests itself in vascular, central nervous system, cutaneous, and connective tissue disturbances and phenotypically resembles Marfan's syndrome. Skin manifestations include malar flush, thin hair, and cutis reticulata / marmorata." http://www.ijdvl.com/article.asp?issn=0378-6323;year=2008;volume=74;issue=4;spage=375;epage=378;aulast=Rao
