Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Simpson-Golabi-Behmel syndrome is an X-linked condition characterized by pre- and postnatal overgrowth, 'coarse' face, postaxial polydactyly, midline defects, and psychomotor development ranging from normal to mildly retarded. We report on an additional sporadic patient with novel manifestations, contributing to a more thorough delineation of this syndrome.
