However, more severe obsessive-compulsive and self-injury problems cali for a special psychiatric attention and treatment Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors SSRIs as fluoxetine have been effective to treat compulsivity and maladaptative behaviors Because of increased morbidity and premature mortality, often associated with hyperlipidemia and coronary disease, preventive measures in addition to clinical and surgical control of morbid obesity have been a major objective in the treatment of cases with PWS9,13, She presented left flank and lumbar colic pain.

She was in use of fluoxetine for six months, and evolved with severe high blood pressure and respiratory failure, that needed intensive care support.

Huge edema and conspicuous self-injury signs were seen on her trunk, forearms, hands and fingers Figures 1 and 2. Menarche occuned by 14 years, when she weighed Kg and was cm in height. Urinalysis detected urate crystals, and urine culture was negative.

In addition to fluoxetine, her initial treatment included diuretic, antihypertensive and allopurinol, and oxygen by catheter or mask.

During the first two weeks of admission, she had respiratory function deterioration, with sleep apnea episodes, that improved with intensive care support Table 1 and loss of 30 Kg in her body weight.

Another occunence was erysipelas in her legs Figure 2C , successfully treated with penicillin. After 50 days of admission, she was discharged to home care assistance.

The initial concern was about the origin of edema associated with morbid obesity, which included a differential diagnoses with Cushing syndrome, hypothyroidism, nephrotic and nephritic syndromes. The normal cortisol, as well as normal TSH and free-T4 levels discarded the hypotheses of Cushing syndrome and hypothyroidism.

Furthermore, the normal serum complement and C3 and C4 fractions, normal anti-DNA antibody, ASLO and rheumatoid factor, in addition to negative tests for HIV and C and B hepatitis virases, and unremarkable urinalysis practically ruled out glomerulonephritis and nephrotic syndrome. Other causes of edema could be heart or hepatic failure; nevertheless, there were no physical or complementary data to support these possibilities. Although a rapid loss of weight was observed following the fluoxetine interruption, the patient did not show hyponatremia or hypokalemia.

The low calorie diet also played an important role in her clinical improvement, with gradual lessening of symptoms related to pulmonary hypoventilation snoring, exercise dyspnea, cyanosis and sleep apnea 17, The benefical effects of weight loss and of the non invasive mechanical ventilation on the respiratory parameters are shown in Table 2.


Worth of note is also the finding of erysipelas in the legs of a patient with morbid obesity, which is very often associated with drainage impairment both through the venous and the fymph vessels from the legs. The patient also presented a colicky pain due to a kidney stone of uric acid. Interestingly, the Lesch-Nyhan syndrome shares with PWS the following features: cognitive deficit, attention and psychomotor delay and self-injury behavior, in addition to hyperuricemia, urate cristaluria and nephrolithiasis.

Not-withstanding, Lesch-Nyhan syndrome is a very rare inborn disturbance of the purine metabolism almost exclusive of males The study of the present case underlined some questions to be considered about PWS.

Note that there is biparental contribution of the two chromosomes 15 in the case of ID, but the paternal P contribution in 15q Full size image Differential diagnosis Several disorders that can strongly resemble PWS should be considered during the diagnostic process.

Deaths in Children with Prader-Willi Syndrome

Infantile hypotonia has a very long list of causes, central and peripheral, syndromic and isolated. Angelman syndrome AS must be considered if the diagnosis was made in an infant by FISH, because AS also presents with hypotonia and feeding difficulties. AS is also frequently caused by a 15q A subset of individuals with Fragile X syndrome can become hyperphagic and obese. A number of other conditions associate obesity and developmental disability, including UPD 14, Cohen syndrome, Bardet—Biedl syndrome, Alstrom syndrome, duplications of 3p The various genomic changes causing PWS all lead to loss of expression of the paternally expressed genes on chromosome 15q This region is highly complex and contains a number of imprinted and non-imprinted genes Figure 5.

The vast majority of individuals with deletions have one of two common proximal breakpoints BP1 and BP2 and a common distal breakpoint BP3.

Figure 5 Summary of the genetic and expression map of chromosomal region 15q The position of genes and genetic markers circles are shown. Only UBE3A and ATP10A shown in red , related to Angelman syndrome AS , have maternal-only expression in mouse and humans, and this imprinted expression is limited to certain tissue-specific regions ie, brain. The exact function of each of these genes in the PWS phenotype is still being elucidated. The various created gene knock out mouse models will be useful in uncovering these contributions.

A recent report suggests that individuals with type 1 deletions BP1 to BP3 had more compulsions and poorer adaptive behavior, intellectual ability, and academic achievement than those with type 2 deletions BP2 to BP3.

Detailed discussions can be found elsewhere. Initial evaluation Please see Table 3 for recommended evaluations at the time of initial diagnosis. Genetic counselling should also take place at the time of diagnosis, as should referral to support organizations.

Genetic counseling and referral to support groups should occur at diagnosis regardless of age Treatment and care Hypotonia In infancy, the major focus should be on assuring adequate nutrition and growth. Compensation for the poor suck almost always requires gavage feeding or use of special nipples eg, enlarged nipple holes or those designed for cleft palate.

As infants rarely wake to feed, a regular feeding schedule should be established. Caloric intake should be assessed, and height, weight and head circumference plotted on growth charts monthly for the first 6 months and quarterly for 12—24 months. Feeding problems are transient, so a gastrostomy tube is rarely necessary.

Fats should not be restricted as they are essential for brain development. Early infant stimulation programs are strongly recommended to assure adequate interactions and optimize strength and milestone achievement.

Encouragement of physical activity is important for strength and agility at all ages. Scoliosis can occur at any time throughout childhood and is treated in a standard manner. Obesity predisposition Nutritional counselling for good long-term weight management should begin in early infancy to prevent the inappropriate weight gain that would otherwise typically begin between 12—36 months of age.

It is important to monitor growth and record measurements on a standard growth curve regularly monthly in early infancy, every 2—3 months from 2 to 6 years, and at least two times yearly thereafter throughout childhood so that excess weight gain can be identified and dealt with early.MR of the pituitary in patients with Prader-Willi syndrome: size determinations and imaging findings.
