Hallo Maradon
Marfan syndrome is a genetic disorder of connective tissue, and the skin lacks elasticity, so this is the reason why she gets stretchmarks. (it is called striae atrophicae)Please ask your doctor to check her platelets and coagulation factors because the bruising should not be due to Marfan. Patients with Marfan syndrome tend to suffer from attention deficit and hyperactivity - which may cause anxiety.
