Cohen  recently discussed the intriguing rela- tionship between the Wiedemann-Beckwith syndrome (WBS), imprinting, insulin-like growth factor I1 (IGFB), and H19. Cohen suggested that the evaluation of asso- ciated conditions such as hemihyperplasia (also re- ferred to as hemihypertrophy) and overgrowth between the 2 forms of WBS, familial and sporadic, may provide clues as to the number of potential loci involved in WBS. He calls for more information about birth weight, neoplasms, and hyperplasia in WBS. The purpose of this letter is to provide a summary of the data on birth weight and Wilms tumor and their possible relation to WBS.
