Full Text

Sir,

We thank the authors [1] of the letter for their keen interest in our published report on McLeod Syndrome (MLS) [2] . It appears that the report mentioned by the authors of the letter had not been adequately cited in PUBMED. Moreover, a lack of molecular genetic data on the case would fall short of making a definitive diagnosis of MLS in the case mentioned. The family reported by us, therefore, appears to be the first genetically proved case of MLS reported from India.
