Inheritance

How is X-linked spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia tarda inherited?

This condition is inherited in an X-linked recessive pattern. A condition is considered X-linked if the mutated gene that causes the disorder is located on the X chromosome, one of the two sex chromosomes. In X-linked recessive inheritance, a female with one mutated copy of the gene in each cell is called a carrier. She can pass on the altered gene, but usually does not experience signs and symptoms of the disorder. However, mild symptoms of osteoarthritis have been reported in female carriers of X-linked spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia tarda.[1]
