Inheritance and Genetics of Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome
Genetics of Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome:
Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome is related to genetics, but only a fifth of all cases are known to run in families. In familial (inherited) cases the syndrome can show an autosomal recessive or dominant pattern of inheritance. Most cases of atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome are spontaneous, which means that there is not a family history of the syndrome.
About inheritance and genetics:
Inheritance of Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome 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.
