A 51-year-old member asked:
uniparental disomy, to have a genetic evaluation for this, does the birth father have to be involved?

If mom not source.: The error (duplication of a gene) could be from an egg or sperm; therefore, either parent could be the source of the replication error. If it were determined that the mother was the source, there would be no need to test the father. Genetic counseling might prove helpful.
