Hi, thank you for asking Healthcare Magic.
I have gone through your query and understood your concerns.
The chances of your other daughter having the same problem will depend on the diagnosis in the elder sister. If the condition is McCune Albright syndrome, then the chances are minimal because this condition is not inherited. It is cause by a random mutation in a certain gene in the body, occurring early in development. It is also a rare condition.

I hope that answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. We will be delighted to answer more questions from you.
I wish her good health
