Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

The above signs are suggestive of Marfans syndrome..,
In Marfans the Arm Span will be more than height of the Body..
also in those patients there will congenital heart diseases..,
hence better consult and physician and also get ECHO to rule out such disorders..
Hope I have answered your question..
