  • Phenotypic differences in African Americans with Prader-Willi Syndrome GENETICS IN MEDICINE Hudgins, L., Geer, J. S., Cassidy, S. B. 1998; 1 (1): 49-51


    We report on 10 African Americans with Prader-Willi syndrome whose features differ from those of white patients with this condition. Growth is less affected, hand and foot lengths usually are normal, and the facies are atypical; this may lead to underdiagnosis in this population. We encourage clinicians to recognize these phenotypic differences so that diagnosis is not overlooked.
