Pathoma gives a different perspective

According to UWorld QID 462, there's no statistical association b/w Marfan and Berry aneurysm, rather it's b/w berry aneurysms & Ehler-Danlos. Found conflicting researches online. But FA mentions there's a link.

It's confusing, but m going with what UWorld says.
It's kind of frustrating that different sources have different answers, but I guess that's what we get for not reading the articles or doing the science ourselves.

Pathoma- the lecture series by Dr. Husain Sattar (I highly recommend it!)- says that Berry aneurysms are seen in association with Marfan syndrome and ADPKD. First Aid 2013 still maintains that Berry aneurysms are associated with Marfan syndrome, ADPKD and Ehlers Danlos.
