Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) overview

Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a rare congenital genetic disorder that results in a number of physical, mental, and behavioral problems. PWS is due to the lack of several genes on one of an individual’s two chromosome 15s.  In the majority of cases, there is a deletion.  In the remaining cases, the entire chromosome from the father is missing and there are instead two chromosome 15’s from the mother (uniparental disomy). Symptoms include poor muscle tone, low levels of sex hormones, and a constant feeling of hunger.
