Marfan syndrome is one of the most common single gene defects with an incidence of around 2-3 per 10000 persons. Neonatal Marfan syndrome is a rare and severe phenotype of this disease. Mortality is very high and is due to congestive heart failure and valvular regurgitations with suboptimal response to medical therapy. We present such a rare case of neonatal Marfan syndrome who had severe heart failure symptoms right after birth due to multivalvular lesions and was treated with prolonged conservative therapy.
