Inherited?
Hello

My husband's father's brother died of muscular dystrophy at the age of 12. My husband nor his father have this condition. Is it possible for my son to inherit this condition?

Thanks!

Depending on which type of muscular dystrophy it is, yes...it is very possible to skip generations. Scientists believe that many genetic problems are transferred through the females though, and that the males tend to be afflicted with the problems.
You would need to speak to a geneticist to understand the possibilities.
