1 doctor agrees
In brief: Very rarely
While it is an x-linked condition and the vast majority of females who have one mutated copy of the was gene are unaffected carriers, there are case reports of women having a mild form of the disease due to non-random x-inactivation.

In brief: No
Given that it's a x-linked recessive condition it affects men .
..Women will be carriers.
