Default Marfan Syndrome and Berry Aneurysms??

Hey everyone,

I was going through First Aid and noticed that it said that berry aneurysm formation is associated with Marfan syndrome. Yet the article below refutes that..

This potential mistake is also mentioned in the First Aid Proposed Errata citing the very same article.

Can someone please confirm if there is an association or not between Marfan Syndrome and the formation of berry aneurysms in the cerebral circulation??
