Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Yes tourette's is an inherited condition.
This is autosomal dominant.
would this be on the mothers side only?
no this can be father's side as weel.
dominant transmission means any one parent can transmit to the kid.
could this be the real father of our step grandaughter and or our son with his 2 year old boy
Yes very much possible.
since this is a autosomal dominant transmission, can be transmitted from mother as well.
An the dominant gene can come from one parent sufficient to cause tourette's
Any further question?
no thank you
