Abstract: Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a neurogenetic disorder associated with recurrent genomic recombination involving low copy repeats (LCRs) located in the human chromosome 15q11-q13. Previous studies of PWS patients from Asia suggested that there is a higher incidence of deletion and lower incidence of maternal uniparental disomy (mUPD) compared to that of Western populations. Despite a lack of data from Asians regarding the incident of deletion subtypes to allow for further comparison, it has previously been proposed that ethnic differences in genomic architecture may be responsible for the discrepancy in genetic etiology observed. In this report, we present genetic etiology of twenty-eight PWS patients from Taiwan. Consistent with the genetic etiology findings from Western populations, the type II deletion appears to be the most common deletion subtype.
