Received Date:March 07, 2022; Published Date: June 07, 2022
Marfan syndrome is a common genetic disorder involving a defciency of the structural extracellular matrix component fbrillin-1 and overactivation of the transforming growth factor-β signalling pathway. The growth factor-β signalling pathway also actively participates in malignant transformation. The aim of this work is to present a rare association observed in a 18-years-old patient treated in the ENT tertiary referral center of Casablanca, Morocco for a voluminous goiter and Marfan syndrome.
