Abstract

Clinical manifestations of Marfan's syndrome (MFS) are secondary to reduced tensile strength of connective tissue. Bronchiectasis as a pulmonary manifestation of MFS has been reported. It is well documented that bronchiectasis may lead to right middle lobe syndrome (RMLS) but the association of MFS and RMLS has never been reported. We report a case of MS with RMLS.
