Germinal mosaicism

Germinal mosaicism: Introduction

Sometimes even an autosomal dominant disease can arise surprisingly when neither parent has the disease. This can be due to a mutation (see sporadic genetic disease), but need not be, and it can also be due to "germinal mosaicism". This is a condition where one parent's gamete cells have the genetic defect, whereas their normal cells do not. These conditions are very rare.
