Abstract

In the case of characteristic chromosomal deletion of chromosome 15(q11----q13) the diagnosis of the Prader-Willi syndrome can be already confirmed in early infancy as shown in our case report. In this connection cytogenetic high-resolution techniques are indispensable. Cytogenetic and clinical problems are discussed.
