Doctor:It really cant be predicted
Doctor:Did someone in your family have it
User:yeah but i was really disturbed with such conflictingnews
User:no doc
User:but my parents r related & are cousins
Doctor:So autosomal recessive is possible in that case
User:hope it is not very late now becoz my daughtr is now 8 yrs old
User:autosomal recessive??
Doctor:its a pattern if inheritance
Doctor:what it means is
Doctor:that you have both the defective copies of the gene
Doctor:You will pass only 1 to your offspring
Doctor:The other comes from your wife
Doctor:If she has a normal version, your child will not have RP
Doctor:If your wife has an abnormal version, your child will have RP
Doctor:Its possible, your father and mother had a defective version
User:my wife has a normal vision
User:or maybe my grand fathers
Doctor:If only 1 single copy of this gene is present, the person will be normal
User:but my parents hv a normal vision
Doctor:Does anybody in your wife's family have RP?
Doctor:Your parents have normal vision because they have 1 normal copy and 1 abnormal copy
Doctor:For someone to have a problem, both copies should be abnormal
Doctor:If nobody in your wife's family has RP it
