Prader-Willi syndrome is a genetic disorder with typical physical and behavioral characteristics and predictable medical complications. Early identification and diagnosis are paramount to providing timely and appropriate interventions to improve patient outcomes, including obesity-related morbidity and mortality. Treatment should focus on neonatal feeding and growth, followed by hormonal therapy for hypothalamic dysfunction, and should then be directed at the prevention and treatment of obesity and obesity-related complications. Effective treatment requires a comprehensive multi-disciplinary approach.
