Transmission of autosomal dominant diseases

A genetic disease of autosomal dominant inheritance develops when a child inherits a copy of the altered gene that causes the disease in one of the parents (sick as well).

The likelihood of transmitting an autosomal dominant disease to offspring is 50%, since the child can inherit the healthy or sick allele.
