Researchers from Argentina monitored 180 children with Prader-Willi syndrome for over 13 years and found that these children were 5.4 to 18.7 times more likely to have at least one birth abnormality compared with the general population. While most of the birth defects were detected in the first month of life, others were spotted following the diagnosis of Prader-Willi syndrome. The findings appear in the journal Pediatrics.
