What happens if a pedigree shows x linked recessive inheritance does it also show autosomal recessive inheritance?
No: X-linked recessive inheritance involves asymptomatic females passing a condition to their sons. An example is hemophilia A and B. Usually only males are affected.

Yes: The dominant form occurs mostly in adults. It is inherited but it takes time to show up as a diagnosable disease in middle to later age. Depending on your luck you either have it from your parent or not( 50% chance).The recessive form could be carried by seemingly healthy persons and when manifests as a disease in the offspring, it shows up at a much earlier age. ...Read more
What are the differences between autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease?
Differences: Main differences are---ADPKD shows itself in adults and 1/3 stays silent, 1/3 cause complications like hypertension etc, and 1/3 progress to end stage renal disease. ARPKD --- on the other hand manifests itself in pediatric population, in fact soon after birth, almost always involves kidneys bilaterally and requires dialysis for survival. Good news-- ADPKD is dominant therefore never skips generat ...Read more
