Description Familial dysautonomia is a genetic disorder that affects the development and survival of certain nerve cells. The disorder disturbs cells in the autonomic nervous system, which controls involuntary actions such as digestion, breathing, production of tears, and the regulation of blood pressure and body temperature.
Familial dysautonomia is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. At conception, each sib of an affected individual has a 25% chance of being affected, a 50% chance of being an asymptomatic carrier, and a 25% chance of being unaffected and not a carrier.
Once an at-risk sib is known to be unaffec. Familial dysautonomia (FD) affects the development and survival of sensory, sympathetic, and parasympathetic neurons. It is a debilitating disease that is present from birth. Progressive neuronal degeneration continues throughout life.
Familial dysautonomia is a rare disorder occurring in children with an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance. The main clinical features are diminished lacrimation, hyperhydrosis, transient blotching of the skin, lability of blood pressure, postural hypotension and poor temperature control.
