I don't normally get questions about specific diseases from community
members in my library - usually we just deal with scientists - but a woman
asked us to find something on Angelman syndrome (her 5 year old child has
it) because it was genetic and we deal with genetics here.
 
I sent her the few pages in 'Mendellian Inheritance in Man' and I did a
quick Medline search for her as well.  Most of the articles had to do with
the genetics of the disease not the treatment or how to deal with the problems.
 
If anyone knows of a specialist this poor woman can call to get support or
help I would appreciate whatever you can send me - or if there is a support
group.  As I said, I seldom deal with queries such as this so I need your help.
 
Sincerely,
