  1. Values for sweat gland density in CdLS individuals with variants in NIPBL and controls by groups of age
  2. aIndependent samples t test. There are statistically significant differences (p < 0.05) in the SGD global mean (control group compared to the global NIPBL group) and by decades of life, in all the decades except in the first one
