Discussion & Conclusion

Q: Is it related to the results presented before? Do you consider them as coherent?

A: Good


Comments: The Discussion provides an overview of the Simpson-Golabi-Behmel Syndrome (SGBS), followed by the features carried by the female carriers. It also illustrates the alterations in the gene expression of the X-chromosome among females. The Conclusion describes the case as the rare female variant of SGBS with bilateral Wilms’ tumor. Lastly, the author suggests that severely skewed X-inactivation is an unusual mechanism for the full expression of x-linked genetic disorders in females.

Further comments on the paper

Comments: The Case Report presents a 20-month-old female with a palpable abdominal mass. Later the imaging revealed Wilms’ tumor in the setting of Simpson-Golabi-Behmel Syndrome. The patient was found to have a de novo deletion in the X-chromosome followed by highly skewed X-inactivation. Further, the case report highlights the implication of X-linked recessive disease identification in female patients.
