In brief: G6PD deficiency
Glucose-6-phosphatase dehydrogenase (g6pd) deficiency is a genetic condition - an x-linked inherited disease that primarily affects boys.
This means that a mother carries the gene that is then transmitted to her son. Future sons maybe affected but not daughters. G6pd deficiency affects all races.
