Abstract

Williams syndrome (WS) is an autosomal disorder resulting from a submicroscopic deletion of contiguous genes on the long arm of chromosome 7. An individual with WS can have a characteristic constellation of problems which include, but are not limited to, distinctive facial features, cardiovascular abnormalities, hypercalcemia, delays in both growth and development, and other associated anomalies. A unique cognitive-linguistic profile and behavioral phenotype are also characteristically seen in individuals with this disorder. In this chapter we review the clinical features and management of WS.
