My 19 year old son has Marfan Syndrome. Recently, he has had multiple recurrent Urinary infections within this month. He has been treated with antibiotics for two weeks already, but the symptoms have not disappeared.

My question is does Marfan Syndrome increase the risk of gettting a Urinary Infection or any other problems affecting the Urinary System? Have any other Marfan patients had any similar problems with the Urinary System?

Thank you for your responses.
