Vsd Run In Families
Potentially: Potentially but is is very rare. Likely less than 1 in a million. There is a mutation that is frequent among patient with unexplained pulmonary htn, formally termed idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension. Current research is focused on identifying potential target of therapy that involve the genes related to familial pulmonary htn. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: The genetics are often complex and vary depending upon the defect. The risk of congenital heart disease overall is 8/1000. The risk of having a second child with congenital heart disease is higher after having the initial affected child. There are a few specific genetic conditions where the risk of having an affected child is 50%. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Absolutely: Very often however, older women will have not gotten a diagnosis of endometriosis but will have a long history of pain or hard periods and their daughters will have the same, starting in their early teens and everyone will just think that "its just what women in our family have as their periods" and no one will consider endometriosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Cerebral Palsy is the result of a brain injury experienced during the pregnancy, labor or delivery. It is not inheritable. However, there are other conditions that can mimic the appearance of cerebral palsy. You shoud consult a pediatric neurologist or genetics specialist for more information. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Rheumatologic issues: The specific diagnosis of lupus wouldn't run in families as much as the tendency towards rheumatologic conditions in general - that tendency runs in families - lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjögren's syndrome, scleroderma. Can find all of these in family lineages. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Run in families: Although it is not entirely clear as to what causes aneurysms, there is a definite familial predisposition to their development. If a parent or sibling has or have had an aneurysm, you are at higher risk and it is important to be checked. This can be done simply and easily with an ultrasound. Contact a vascular surgeon and have the test done at an icavl accredited vascular laboratory. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
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
Heredity is the most: Common underlying factor in development of adhd; heritability is estimated ~ 76%. Molecular genetic studies show specific alleles (alternate forms of a gene found at the same site on a chromosome) in family members with adhd differ from those of family members without adhd. Environmental factors before & after birth contribute, also. Multiple candidate genes are being studied; stay tuned. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Many do: sickle cell, thalassemia, clotting disorders associated with protein c or s deficiency, and many others. There are other blood disorders, usually acquired (antiphospholipid syndrome) that are not. So a definivite answer requires knowing what type of blood disorder. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
