2. Genetic Inheritance Patterns

Alport syndrome is an inherited disease, meaning it develops as a result of the mutated gene passing from parent to child, in either an X-linked or autosomal inheritance pattern. The development and progression of the disease is the same regardless of the inheritance pattern. Around 80% of Alport syndrome cases are X-linked.
