Inheritance

How is Hallermann-Streiff syndrome inherited?

The majority of cases of Hallermann-Streiff syndrome appear to be sporadic (occurring in individuals with no history of the condition in the family).[1][2] There have been reports of affected individuals having multiple, unaffected children. Although some have reported it appears to be inherited in an autosomal recessive manner in a small number of cases, others have argued that there is little evidence for this being a recessively inherited disorder.[3][4] Therefore, the mode of inheritance of the condition remains unclear.
