Is prolidase deficiency an inherited condition?

Yes, prolidase deficiency is an inherited disorder that is passed from parents to children in an autosomal recessive pattern. This means that both parents must have a copy of the defective gene in order to pass it to their children; frequently the parents do not have symptoms or the condition. See Graphic.
