Inheritance and Genetics of Tuberculous meningitis
Genetics of Tuberculous meningitis:
There is evidence that genetic factors may affect susceptibility to tuberculous meningitis.
Genetics of Tuberculous meningitis
Tuberculous meningitis is NOT a genetic disease. Tuberculous meningitis is an infectious disease.
In general, an infectious disease can be caused by a pathogenic organism (viruses, bacteria, fungi, worms, parasites) that can invade the body and cause infection.
Some infectious diseases can be contagious between people while others are acquired from the person's surroundings but are not spread from one person to another.
About inheritance and genetics:
Inheritance of Tuberculous meningitis refers to whether the condition is inherited
from your parents or "runs" in families.
The level of inheritance of a condition depends
on how important genetics are to the disease.
Strongly genetic diseases are usually inherited,
partially genetic diseases are sometimes inherited,
and non-genetic diseases are not inherited.
