ABSTRACT This article reviews the case of an infant with Angelman syndrome, a genetic disorder caused by a chromosomal mutation. The patient's mother was concerned about his flat head and preference for turning his head to the right, which led to a referral and eventual correct diagnosis.

At Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pa., Marcie Fitzgerald is a clinical director and assistant professor and Sara M. Turner is an assistant professor of biology. The authors have disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
