Related Disorders. Weaver Syndrome is similar to Marshall-Smith Syndrome in that growth and bone maturation occur faster than normal. However, patients with Weaver Syndrome have normal to above normal weight in relation to their height whereas patients with Marshall-Smith Syndrome are underweight in relation to their height.

Marshall-Smith Syndrome, discovered in 1971 (Marshall, Graham, Scott, Boner, & Smith), is characterized by unusual accelerated skeletal maturation (usually starting before birth) and symptoms like conspicuous physical characteristics, respiratory difficulties, and mental retardation. Cases described in the literature show a clinical variabililty regarding related symptoms.
