Haemophilia A

X-linked recessive condition, deficiency of factor VIII, prevalence 1 in 10,000 Range of possible mutations, 30% of cases due to sporadic mutation Low factor VIII levels predispose to bleeding – risk proportional to factor VIII level Mild disease (11-30 units/dl) risk after significant trauma/surgery Moderate disease (2-10 units) - minor trauma

Neurofibromatosis

There are two types of neurofibromatosis, both inherited in an autosomal dominant manner, although some cases arise from spontaneous mutation. It results in benign tumours of the nervous system and bony and dermatological deformities.   Type I Neurofibromatosis – NF1 – aka von Recklinghausen’s disease

Cystic Fibrosis (CF)

This is the most common life-limiting inherited disease in Caucasians. It is caused by a genetic mutation that alters mucus production, resulting in a more viscous solution. It is autosomal recessive.   Life expectancy is improving. Newborns with CF have a life-expectancy of about 40 years. The condition is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern.   Epidemiology Most common in Caucasians, rare in other races.

Chromosomal Abnormalities

Chromosomal Abnormalities Chromosomal abnormalities are a very common cause of spontaneous miscarriage. Most commonly a child with a chromosomal abnormality will not survive to birth. However, there are many cases where the child will survive, although often they have severe disability in life. The normal rate of miscarriage in the general population is 15%. Miscarriage does not become statistically significant unless one particular woman has >3 instances.

Fragile X Syndrome (Martin-Bell Syndrome)

So called as there is a ‘fragile site’ on the X chromosome. This is a non-staining, weakened section of the chromosome which is susceptible to breaking. It is an example of a trinucleotide expansion mutation, but is usually inherited in an X-linked recessive pattern.  Fragile X syndrome is the second most common cause of genetic learning difficulty after Down’s Syndrome.
