Have you had a genetic test that revealed a change (mutation) in the genes that affect your body's elastic fibers? This study aims to learn more about the impact of changes in connective tissue genes on an individual's overall health. To participate in this study, you or your child must be between the ages of 2 and 100 years old. You must have also had a genetic test that identified changes in a gene that affects elastic fibers (e.g., ELN, LOX, MFAP4, FBLN5 and EFEMP). This study is located at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
