A syndrome is a disease or disorder that has more than one identifying feature or symptom. Each particular genetic syndrome will have many typical features, depending on which aspects of development are affected by the abnormal genes or chromosomes. A child might be born with obvious body deformities, abnormal organ function (for example: heart, brain, gut, or kidney), or neurological problems (for example, when a babys body is floppy or the baby is unable to nurse or bottle feed). However, many of the genetic syndromes start to take effect only once the baby has been born and is starting to feed and grow. These babies may look and act entirely normal at birth, but then develop problems later on in life.

Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
