Book description

Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is associated with an assortment of physical, behavioural and cognitive abnormalities which create a broad range of care needs. Information about the syndrome is spread across a variety of disciplines. In this book the authors seek to identify and provide the latest findings about how best to manage the complex medical, nutritional, psychological, educational, social and therapeutic needs of people with PWS. Their approach is an integrated one, centred on the PWS phenotype. Both authors have been involved in the Cambridge PWS study, which is the largest and most rounded of the cohort studies of PWS anywhere in the world. The unique data it provides is the basis of this book.


Review of the hardback:'It is a representative compilation of the knowledge of today … can be recommended to all readers interested in genetics and their connections to different human functions. Even parents of children with PWS who want to know where the front line of research is will find this book valuable.'

Review of the hardback:'… provides a wealth of very valuable facts to add to the jigsaw pieces that will eventually reveal a whole picture of a fascinating syndrome.'
