Autosomal Recessive Genetic Diseases

Autosomal Recessive Genetic Diseases: Introduction

The non-sex chromosomes 1..22 are called "autosomes" and the resulting conditions called autosomal genetic diseases. (For comparison, the other conditions affecting the sex chromsomes X and Y are called x-linked genetic diseases.)

Recessive diseases are diseases where both copies of a gene must be damaged or mutated. In other words, the genetic error usually needs to be inherited from both parents to get the disease. Inheriting this gene error from only one parent usually causes the person to be a "carrier" of the disease, still having the genetic error, but usually without any diseases or symptoms.
