1 doctor agrees

In brief: I don't know

Cutis marmorata is a type of skin mottling that can occur on its own or be part of more than a dozen genetic syndromes.
Marfan syndrome (http://www.Marfan.Org/marfan/) is not one of these. The most common skin change in marfan syndrome is stretch marks. These two conditions may have occured in these sisters entirely independently. Their doctors should be sure to confirm each diagnosis.
