Similar de novo cytogenetic or molecular deletions can be detected in both conditions. Prader–Willi syndrome occurs when the deletion affects the paternally derived chromosome 15, whereas the Angelman syndrome occurs when it affects the maternally derived chromosome. In most patients with Prader–Willi syndrome who do not have a chromosome deletion, both chromosome 15s are maternally derived (uniparental disomy). When UPD involves imprinted regions of the genome it has the same effect as a chromosomal deletion arising from the opposite parental chromosome.

4 35 ABC of Clinical Genetics clinical signs or symptoms. Genes demonstrating reduced penetrance include tuberous sclerosis, retinoblastoma and otosclerosis. Example 6 shows the risk to the child and grandchild of an affected individual for a disorder with 80% penetrance in which only 80% of gene mutation carriers develop the disorder. Although clinically unaffected, individuals A and B may still carry the mutant gene. The risk to individual C is small. In general the risk of clinical disease affecting the grandchild of an affected person is fairly low if the intervening parent is unaffected.

Many members of the family will, however, be gene carriers and may wish to know the risk for their own children being affected. Example 7 shows the risk for relatives being carriers in a family where an autosomal recessive disorder has occurred, ignoring the possibility that both partners in a particular couple may be carriers apart from the parents of the affected child. 6 Example 9 Example 9 When there is a tradition of consanguinity, more than one marriage between related individuals may occur in a family.
