Inheritance and Genetics of Androgen insensitivity syndrome, partial
Genetics of Androgen insensitivity syndrome, partial:
Most cases of partial androgen insensitivity syndrome are inherited from the mother in an X-linked recessive pattern. The remaining cases are caused by a new mutation that occurs in the mother's egg cell prior to fertilization or early in embryonic development (after fertilization).
