    Possible complications

    Angelman syndrome can cause such complications as:


    • Feeding difficulties
    • Hyperactivity
    • Sleep disorders
    • Curving of the spine (scoliosis)
    • Obesity



    What causes

    In most cases, Angelman syndrome is caused by problems with a gene located on chromosome 15 called the ubiquitin-protein ligase E3A (UBE3A) gene.

    Prevention

    Angelman syndrome may rarely be passed from affected parent to child through defective genes. If you are concerned about a family history of Angelman syndrome, or if you already have a child with Angelman syndrome, you may wish to talk to your doctor or a genetic counselor for help planning future pregnancies.


    Treatment

    No specific therapy for Angelman syndrome exists. Medical therapy for seizures is usually needed. Physical and occupational therapies, communication therapy and behavioral therapies are important in allowing individuals with Angelman syndrome to reach their maximum developmental potential.
