In brief: Dominant

Marfan syndrome is inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion.
Most people with marfan syndrome have an affected parent. About 25% of people with marfan syndrome appear to have a spontaneous mutation in fbn1.

In brief: Autosomal dominant

Autosomal dominant means it affects both males and females equally and that you need only one gene to have the trait.
