Prader Willi

Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a rare genetic disorder that affects children of all races and ethnicities, and is recognized as the most common genetic cause of life-threatening childhood obesity. In recent years, the syndrome has been characterized genetically as an abnormality of chromosome 15, and definitive diagnosis is based on genetic testing.
