  • I have this condition since I was a child.

Is it usual for Milroy disease to travel around the body like this? Is there a cure? Click here for answer

  • I have two older brothers with Milroy disease. I do not exhibit any signs or symptoms of the condition. I am currently pregnant and was under the impression that since I do not show the signs of Milroy disease that my offspring would not be at risk for this disorder. Am I correct in my understanding that an autosomal dominant trait must be present in order to be passed on to offspring?  Click here for answer
