Dear Editor,

We appreciate the effort and the interest of the authors for writing a letter to editor on the published review article titled, “Osteochondroma of the scaphoid in a 5-year-old child: A rare case report.”[1] Below are the responses to their comments.

We did not consider hereditary multiple exostoses (HME) in our patient as there was no family history of similar complaints in grandfather, father, paternal uncle or aunt, and her other siblings.

We agree that the consanguineous unions have been significantly associated with increased susceptibility to the various forms of inherited diseases, but in our case, the girl was born out of nonconsanguineous marriage.

Furthermore, the question of doing a gene analysis to support the diagnosis of HME does not arise in our case as there were no other bony swellings noted clinically elsewhere on the body. HME being an autosomal dominant bone disease [2] should have manifested in any of her relatives, but no such history was elicited from the parents. Hence, it was not considered by the authors.
