Autosomal dominant inheritance

In this example, a man with an autosomal dominant disorder has two affected children and two unaffected children.

Examples of Autosomal Dominant Disease

  • Huntington’s Disease (HD) - neurodegenerative disorder characterised by progressive motor abnormality and cognitive deterioration. (More? Student Project | neural)


  • Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) - late-onset multisystem disorder characterized by bilateral renal cysts, liver cysts, and an increased risk of intracranial aneurysms. (heterozygous pathogenic variant in PKD1, PKD2, GANAB, or DNAJB11) (More? renal)
