CC HPO: See also X-linked mental retardation, Christianson typewhich shows phenotypic overlap with Angelman syndrome.

Angelman syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by mental retardation, movement or balance disorder, typical abnormal behaviors, and severe limitations in speech and language.

Most cases are caused by absence of a maternal contribution to the imprinted region on chromosome 15qq Prader-Willi syndrome PWS; is a clinically distinct disorder resulting from paternal deletion of the same 15qq13 region. In addition, the chromosome 15qq13 duplication syndrome shows overlapping clinical features. Clayton-Smith and Pembrey provided a review of Angelman syndrome.

Cassidy and Schwartz reviewed the molecular and clinical aspects of both Prader-Willi syndrome and Angelman syndrome. Angelman reported 3 ‘puppet children,’ as he called them. Angelman emphasized the abnormal cranial shape and suggested angellman the depressed occiput may reflect a cerebellar abnormality.

Harry Angelman pronounces his name as though it means ‘male angel;’ in other words, he uses a ‘long a’ and a ‘soft g.

Clinical features included severe motor and intellectual retardation, ataxia, hypotonia, epilepsy, absence of speech, and unusual facies characterized by a large mandible and open-mouthed expression revealing the tongue. The French refer to the syndrome as that of the ‘marionette joyeuse’ Halal and Chagnon, or ‘pantin hilare’ Pelc et al.

Williams and Frias suggested use of the eponym Angelman syndrome because the term ‘happy puppet’ may appear derisive and even derogatory to the patient’s family. Berg and Pakula reported a case and reviewed those reported by Angelman and Bower and Jeavons All of the patients demonstrated excessive laughter, an occipital groove, a great facility for protruding the tongue, abnormal choroidal pigmentation, and characteristic electroencephalogram EEG discharges.

Of the 3 patients reported by Angelmanat least 1 developed optic atrophy. Two patients showed jerky movements and had trouble walking, which was believed to result from poor balance. One, a 9-year-old boy who was noticed as an infant to be ‘floppy,’ could take only a few steps without support.

Both patients had major convulsions and showed periods of flapping their arms up and down with the elbows flexed. The EEG pattern seen in these 2 cases and in the cases of Bower and Jeavons consisted of high amplitude bilateral spike-and-wave activity which was symmetrical, synchronous, and most often monorhythmic, having a slow wave component at 2 cycles per sec.

The patient reported by Berg and Pakula had an unaffected sib who also showed abnormal EEG patterns. Normal karyotype was found in the 5 patients studied. Williams and Frias demonstrated unilateral cerebellar atrophy by CT imaging in 1 patient with AS. In 6 of 8 children with AS, aged 3 to 10 years, Dickinson et al. All 6 had light blue irides with normal iris architecture. All were isolated cases born to healthy, unrelated parents. The presence or absence of 15q microdeletions did not correlate with the ocular findings.

In a review of clinical features in 36 children with Angelman syndrome, Robb et al. The movement disorder consisted of a wide-based, ataxic gait with frequent jerky limb movements and flapping of the hands. One of their patients had oculocutaneous albinism, and all were hypopigmented compared to their first-degree relatives. All 4 had choroidal pigment hypoplasia, severe to profound global developmental delay and microcephaly of postnatal onset, seizures, hypotonia, hyperreflexia, and hyperkinesis.


Clayton-Smith reported on observations concerning 82 affected individuals. All of them had absent speech or spoke less than 6 words. Thirty-nine percent were hypopigmented compared to their family members. In addition, 7 patients had partial seizures with eye deviation and vomiting similar to those of childhood occipital epilepsies.

Reish and King established the diagnosis of Angelman syndrome in a year-old woman. She had been healthy without seizures and had a history of pelvic fracture resulting from her unbalanced gait.

She was born to a year-old mother. Her height was cm and her IQ was measured at less than She did not speak and had frequent bursts of laughter. Reish and King demonstrated a 15q Most patients between the ages of 2 and 16 years showed at least 8 of the major characteristics of the syndrome bursts of laughter, happy disposition, hyperactivity, micro- and brachycephaly, macrostomia, tongue protrusion, prognathism, widely spaced teeth, puppet-like movements, wide-based gait in addition to mental retardation and absence of speech.

In children under the age of 2 years, bursts of laughter was found in In patients over 16 years of age, protruding tongue was found in No case of paternal disomy was found.

The authors noted that the diagnosis of Angelman syndrome may be hampered in young children because of the absence of some typical manifestations and in older patients because of the changing behavioral characteristics.

There were 9 males and 18 females, all sporadic cases, ranging in age from 3 to 34 years, and all ataxic, severely retarded, and lacking in recognizable speech.

Head circumference at birth was normal in all but skewed in distribution, with One patient had ocular cutaneous albinism. Among 22 institutionalized adults selected for criteria suggestive of Angelman syndrome, Sandanam et al.

The mean age at last review was Clinical assessment documented findings of large mouth and jaw with deep set eyes and microcephaly in 9 patients 2 having a large head size for height. No patient was hypopigmented; 1 patient was fair. The EEG was abnormal in 10 of 10 patients.

Ocular abnormalities were reported in 3 of 8 patients Two had never walked. No patient had a single word of speech, but 1 patient could use sign language for 2 needs, food and drink. The findings of Sandanam et al. Lossie and Driscoll described a pregnancy in a year-old female with AS who had been reported by Williams et al.

However, extensive cytogenetic and molecular analyses of peripheral blood and skin fibroblasts failed to reveal any abnormality in 15qq13 in the mother. The daughter had classic AS features, with severe mental retardation, AS-specific behavior, complete lack of speech, and a movement disorder characterized angellman ataxia. She showed microbrachycephaly with a head circumference of less than -2 standard deviations, relative prognathism, a protruding tongue, excessive drooling, and an inappropriately happy affect with excessive laughter.

Menarche began at The pregnancy was terminated at 15 to 16 weeks’ senddromu. The fetus had inherited large deletions of maternal 15qq13 and demonstrated paternal-only DNA methylation imprints along 15qq UBE3A was paternally expressed in eye tissue from the fetus. These results indicated that females with AS are fully capable of reproduction and that UBE3A is not imprinted in fetal eye.

The mean age at seizure onset was 13 months range 4 months to 2 years and 11 months. In 18 patients, seizure onset preceded diagnosis of AS. The patients represented 3 genetic classes: Myopia and anisometropia unequal refractive errors were found only in the genetic deletion group.


Hypopigmentation was observed in all of the genetic classes. By gathering data from standardized phone interviews with caregivers, Larson et al. Stalker and Williams addressed the challenges of genetic counseling in this disorder with multiple causes. Parental transmission of a structurally or functionally unbalanced chromosome complement can lead to 15qq13 deletions or to UPD and will result in case-specific recurrence risks. Misdiagnoses can be represented in this group as well.

In light of the many conditions that are clinically similar to AS, it is essential to address the possibility of diagnostic uncertainty and potential misdiagnosis before providing genetic counseling.

Stalker and Williams presented an algorithmic chart summarizing the different causal classes of AS for consideration in determining recurrence risks. The authors recommended that FISH studies for detection of mosaicism be done in patients with clinical findings of AS even if methylation studies are normal. Hall reported an apparently unique response by Angelman syndrome individuals to the vibrating tuning fork when it was held up to their ears.

The response was a wide smile, often with an outburst of laughter, followed by a tendency to lean toward the vibrating tuning fork. In 6 consecutive Angelman individuals ranging in ages from 18 months to 43 years, they demonstrated a positive ‘tuning fork response.

Parents had observed their affected children as liking sound. This feature was manifested by their lying down or leaning against appliances that made a noise as if it relaxed them or made them feel good. Hall raised the possibility of the potential use of sound in intervention strategies for these individuals. Hall and Cadle described a month-old child, later confirmed to have Angelman syndrome, who had a positive tuning fork response.

The authors suggested that this test, if found to be positive in Angelman syndrome children at ages sendrmou to 12 months, may aid in xngelman often difficult first-year diagnosis.

The list of associated findings was expanded to include abnormal food related behaviors, obesity, constipation, and scoliosis. In addition, some patients show attraction to or fascination with water and ‘crinkly’ items, such as papers and plastics. Sleep disturbances include abnormal sleep-wake cycles and diminished need for sleep. The clinical diagnosis of Angelman syndrome is based on the presence of all 4 major criteria, i.

Single gene conditions include methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase deficiencyRett syndrome, alpha-thalassemia angflman syndrome ATRX; sendroku, and Gurrieri syndrome There are, in addition, symptom complexes, including cerebral palsy seeautism spectrum disorderand pervasive developmental delay PDDthat can suggest Angelman syndrome. Angelman syndrome results from a lack of maternal contribution from chromosome 15qq13, arising from de novo deletion in most cases or from uniparental disomy in rare cases.

Most families are therefore associated with a low recurrence risk.

Although Angelman syndrome is not typically mendelian, familial occurrence has been reported. Srndromu EEG changes were striking in all 7 patients. Paternal age was not remarkable in the patients of Williams and Frias
