Aarskog syndrome

Inheritance

If a male is affected with Aarskog syndrome, what is the chance that his children will be affected?

If a male is affected with X-linked Aarskog syndrome, there is a 0% chance that his male children will be affected (because males pass on their Y sex chromosome to their male children), and a 100% chance that his female children will get the gene change (because males pass on their X chromosome to their female children).

If a male has Aarksog syndrome caused by an unknown gene change, he may have up to a 50% chance to pass on Aarskog syndrome to each of his children (boys or girls). A genetic counselor or medical geneticist can help determine the likelihood that a person with Aarskog pass on the condition. A medical geneticists can be found by asking your doctor for a referral or looking on the American College of Medical Geneticists website. Genetic counselors can be found on the National Society of Genetic Counselors website.
