Can Swyer syndrom be passed onto offspring?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 09/27/2019

In some cases, Swyer's syndrome is not hereditary, but is caused by a genetic mutation that occurs spontaneously, with no known cause.

However, some women have close relatives with the same SRY gene mutation who did not develop the syndrome. In these cases, genetic studies would have to be done to find out if it is an inherited disorder.
