Information About Prader-Willi syndrome

Prader-Willi syndrome is a complex genetic condition that affects many parts of the body. In infancy, this condition is characterized by weak muscle tone (hypotonia), feeding difficulties, poor growth, and delayed development. Affected individuals may also develop an insatiable appetite, which leads to chronic overeating and obesity.
