Inheritance

How is Gilbert syndrome inherited?

Gilbert syndrome is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern, which means both copies of the gene in each cell have mutations. The parents of a person with an autosomal recessive condition each carry one copy of the mutated gene, but they typically do not show signs and symptoms of the condition.[1]
