I Although there is a Williams syndrome that has aortic manifestations (supravalvar aortic stenosis), the name Williams was never associated with the disorder we now call Marfan syndrome. The reason is clear: Williamswas geographically removed from the leading medical centers and published in the Transactions of the American Ophthalmological Society; surely his report attracted little attention and the non-ocular features were not emphasized. 2 The case report that brought the disorder to attention was provided by a prominent Pari­ sian professor of pediatrics, Antoine Bernard-Jean Marfan (1858-1942), who did much to establish pediatrics as a specialty in France and elsewhere.
