BODY OF THE PAPER: The body of the research paper should include the following discussion areas:
a) a detailed description of the anatomic abnormality of the system/s
b) a detailed description of the alteration in normal physiology and
impact on the physiological state created by the abnormality
c) what differentiating characteristics are seen between males and
females with this condition
d) any potential abnormalities that may be passed on to the next
e) a generalized discussion of treatment for the patient
f) a discussion of the prognosis for the patient
CONCLUSION: The conclusion should summarily state what the abnormality is, what significant changes it has created in human anatomy & physiology and what the prognosis is for a patient with this problem.
