    Correct answer:

    Yes, it's Marfan syndrome, a genetic disorder of the connective tissue.

    Characteristics are clearly visible: dolichostenomelia (very long limbs) and arachnodactyly (long fingers and toes) fit the disease perfectly. Other complications include mitral valve prolaps, aortic aneurysm, pes planus and lens dislocation.
