Autosomal Dominant

Refers to disorders caused by changes (“mutations”) in genes located on one of the 22 pairs of autosomes. Inheriting one gene copy is enough for a person to be affected and thus to show signs of the disorder. The change can be new (“sporadic”) in the affected individual, or inherited from an affected parent. Autosomal dominant disorders affect males and females equally. Compare this term to recessive.
