Description

This is the second of three sessions that consider interpreting family histories and identifying patients with, or at risk of, a genetic condition. Here we cover several important X-linked recessive conditions, including haemophilia A and Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The X-linked form of retinitis pigmentosa and the inheritance of Fragile X syndrome are also discussed.

Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Recognise X-linked recessive patterns of inheritance
• Interpret a family history / family tree
• Describe how genetic probability is estimated for X-linked recessive conditions
• Describe how some genetic conditions can show heterogeneity
