- Acromicric skeletal dysplasia
On this page
Acromicric dysplasia is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. This means that only one abnormal copy of the disease-causing gene is sufficient to cause the disorder. Not all affected individuals inherit the condition from an affected parent. In most cases, the condition results from a new mutation that occurs for the first time in an affected individual. An affected individual has a 50% (1 in 2) risk to pass the condition on to each of of his/her children.
