Does GPA or MPA run in families?

Family members of people who have granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA) or microscopic polyangiitis (MPA) don't appear to be at increased risk of developing either type of vasculitis: Also, GPA and MPA aren't contagious. These disorders can't spread from one person to another by direct or indirect contact. Although GPA can affect more than one member of a family, this situation rarely occurs. Typically, GPA and MPA develop in people who have no family history of either disease. Still, it's possible that genetic factors might play a role in the development of GPA and MPA. It's believed that one or more genetic and environmental factors, such as infections, allergic reactions, certain drugs and diseases, might trigger an immune system response that causes GPA and MPA symptoms. Further research is needed to determine which genes might play a role. ...Read more
