Angelman syndrome (AS) is a rare genetic disorder, first described by Harry Angelman in 1965 [1]. Thus, three of his patients showed severe to profound intellectual disabilities, excessive laughing, jerky movements, and abnormal physical development. Because the three participants emphasized a flat head disorder, they were called "puppet children". Their common behavior was characterized by ataxia, lack of speech, learning difficulties, seizures, tongue protrusion, and motor impairments. A new unique distinct syndrome known as AS was identified.
