Inheritance and Genetics of Macular dystrophy, vitelliform -- adult onset
Genetics of Macular dystrophy, vitelliform -- adult onset:
Some forms of adult onset vitelliform macular dystrophy are genetic and exhibit autosomal dominant inheritance, however, not all genetic cases are inherited. These cases of vitelliform macular dystrophy occur sporadically, and the gene mutation can be passed down through subsequent generations.
About inheritance and genetics:
Inheritance of Macular dystrophy, vitelliform -- adult onset 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.
