EIC information meeting about Prader-Willy syndrome (PWS)

A Member of the Prader-Willy Association in Catalonia and representative in Catalonia of the Federation of Rare Diseases, Anna Ripoll, was in the EIC on Wednesday October 11th to provide a training session on this disease, aimed at preschool teachers.

The Prader-Willy Syndrome (PWS) is a genetic illness with complex clinical symptoms because it affects multiple body systems. It causes a change in the regulatory functions of the hypothalamus, which causes absence of the sense of being full after eating, changes in behaviour, muscle hypotonia… It is considered the most common cause of genetic obesity.

It is estimated that approximately one in every 15.000 people is born with PWS. It occurs in men as well as women and has been detected in individuals of all races. The name of the syndrome comes from the names of the doctors who described this disorder for first time in 1956.

 

As in any syndrome, everyone is different and, therefore, not all features are present in all affected individuals and the degree of affliction varies significantly from one person to another.
