Abstract: Six people with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) who developed psychoses are described. Along with other literature reviewed in the present paper, the results imply an association between PWS and psychotic symptoms. Genetic studies were possible in five cases and SNRPN expression was examined in three cases. Maternal uniparental disomy and 15q11q13 deletions were found, demonstrating that psychotic symptoms are not associated with a single type of genetic abnormality.
