List of Autosomal Dominant and Recessive Disorders

Autosomal dominant and recessive disorders play a major role in determining the transfer of disease from parents to children.

What is Autosomal Dominant?

If the disorder is Autosomal dominant only one infected gene from any one parent is enough to cause the disease in the child.

What is Autosomal Recessive ?

If the disorder is Autosomal recessive there should be transfer of both affected genes from both the parents to cause the disease. If gene from only one parent is transferred then the child becomes a carrier but does not get the disease.
