Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
Chondrodystrophy is an autosomal recessive disorder, meaning that in order for this disease to be expressed, the affected individual must possess two copies of the allele for the disorder. The inheritance of the chondrodystrophy gene is as follows:
if the healthy daughter marries someone else who is a marrier of the chondrodystrophy gene, they could have 1/4 chance to have a child with chondrodystrophy
the healthy daughter and partner should undergo genetic testing and genetic consultation prior to having children to check for this recessive gene.
let me know if you have questions.
she has a 50% chance of being a carrier of the receive gene and a 25% chance of having having the gene at all.
just from a photo, we most likely can't tell about Achondroplasia which is a form of short-limbed dwarfism
let me know if you have other questions.
