Hope this helps; Autosomal Dominant Inheritance If a parent has the gene for an autosomal dominant condition, there is a 50 percent chance (a one-in-two chance) that each child will have the same condition. Dominant disorders often are quite variable, with symptoms ranging from none to severe. Some conditions passed on through autosomal dominant inheritance include familial high cholesterol.
