  We present a clinical pattern of Prader-Labhart-Willi syndrome in a 16-month-old boy. The syndrome is characterized by the development of severe obesity and delayed psychomotor and sexual development as well as a determined dysfunction of the РWS-АS site in the 15th pair of chromosomes of male origin. The peculiarity of the case is apnea manifestations, which are likely to lead to fatal outcome.
