Management of Prader-Willi Syndrome brings together the contributions of professionals with considerable expertise in diagnosis and management of PWS. Clinical, social, family, and community issues are explored and management strategies identified. The text presents historical, medical, and genetic information to orient the reader. The major portion deals with pragmatic guidelines, rather than research and diagnosis, and is directed to health and educational specialists in academic, clinical, and community settings. This manual is endorsed by The Prader-Willi Syndrome Association, which is recognized world-wide.

Although Prader-Willi syndrome was first described 35 years ago, it was following detection of an interstitial chromosome 15q deletion in some affected patients ten years ago that it became a major focus of multidisciplinary scientific interest. This interest was compounded by the later determination that some patients with a clinically distinct disorder, Angelman syndrome, apparently also had the same chromosome 15q deletion. Subsequently, molecular genetic studies showed that some cytogenetically normal patients with both disorders have uniparental disomy, maternal in Prader-Willi syndrome and paternal in Angelman syndrome. Genetic imprinting has been implicated in this unusual phenomenon. This Workshop was conceived to bring together clinical and basic scientists from around the world whose research was focused on unraveling this unique genetic situation and further delineating these two fascinating disorders. As this volume demonstrates, it was successful in reaching this goal. Laboratory and clinical scientists from 15 countries in four continents participated, and even more countries were represented among the professional and parent observers of its proceedings. Many participants had previously known each other in print only. As a consequence of the Workshop, conclusions could be drawn on several issues. International collaborative research efforts were established. And acquaintances were developed between people who investigate the genetics of these disorders from differing perspectives, resulting in enrichment of approach to answering the complex questions posed by these fascinating conditions. Plans were initiated for another such scientific workshop a few years hence. This volume includes papers presented from the platform.

Over the past years, great advances have been made in the research of Prader-Willi Syndrome and its treatment options. The results raise hopes that the once depressing outlook for children with PWS and their parents will gradually give way to a much improved quality of life. Clinical research has shown that there is a hypothalamic growth hormone deficiency in PWS and that growth hormone treatment improves body composition, body proportions and physical performance of patients. Increased lean body mass enhances energy expenditure and - provided the energy input can be restrained - children no longer become obese. The disappearance of the obese phenotype in children with PWS who are treated with growth hormone starting before puberty prevents stigmatisation of children and their families in society. The mental retardation and the compulsive behavior disorder will however remain major handicaps which seemingly cannot be influenced by growth hormone therapy. This book provides an overview of the clinical research results as to hormones and metabolism of PWS with special emphasis on growth hormone and growth hormone treatment. Besides the outstanding scientific texts, this volume offers comprehensive photographic material to document the development of selected patients over several years and to illustrate extreme individual changes in the physical appearance and facial expression.
