Check out this article from JACC written by doctors Safanah T. Siddiqui and Stacy D. Fisher called: Heritable FLNA Gene Mutation in a Patient With Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm.


It is believed to be "the first documented case of the FLNA gene mutation and related aneurysm in a patient with lupus".


"In this case, genetic screening for our patient led to detection of a TAA in her mother. This case builds a strong argument for a universal approach to genetic screening of patients with aneurysms, including those with alternative explanations for etiology, and further screening of their family members. Recognition may lead to prevention of complications and better serve patients and their family members with appropriate screening and precautionary measures."
