Autosomal dominant inheritance is a way a genetic trait or condition can be passed down from parent to child.
One copy of a mutated gene from one parent can cause the genetic condition.
A child who has a parent with the mutated gene has a 50% chance of inheriting that mutated gene.
The main features of autosomal dominant inheritance pattern include: Males and females are affected in roughly equal proportions.
People in more than one generation are affected.
Men and women are both able to pass on the condition to their sons and daughters.
