My boyfriend's father and sister are suffering from leucoderma. Neither me nor my boyfriend have such a problem till now. Also no one in my family is suffering from this disease. What is the possibility that if we get married, our child or future generation will also suffer from leucoderma??
Genetics has a minor factor in the development of leucoderma. While 20% of patients with leucoderma would have a family history; there is a 2-7 % chance of development of leucoderma with a positive family history and with the condition absent in the parent, this would tend to be at the lower end of the range.
Hope the information is helpful.
