Prader-Willi Syndrome: Two Case Studies

pp. 133—136

Prader-Willi Syndrome is a low-incidence handicap which cannot be diagnosed in infancy. At this time, most adults reported in the literature are institutionalized and profoundly retarded. They exhibit hypotonia, hypogonadism, obesity, and most have a history of adolescent-onset diabetes mellitus. Longitudinal studies are rare, educational research is scarce, and only recently have parents formed a national association to share ideas. Paul and Robert are Prader-Willi Syndrome children.
