Marfan Syndrome 

We have a family in which one of the two children has Marfan syndrome and the mother is pregnant at second trimester. The diagnosis of Marfan Syndrome is based on clinical findings rather then molecular analysis. We want to know if there is any laboratory method for prenatal diagnosis of the syndrome and any laboratory performs this method.
