XLH Fact: Inheritance
The gene responsible for XLH is located on the X chromosome, and having only one mutated copy of the gene is enough to cause the condition in both males and females. A female with XLH has a 50% chance of passing XLH to each of her children. A male with XLH will pass XLH to all of his daughters, but to none of his sons. In some cases, XLH is not inherited from a parent, but occurs in a person with no family history of XLH, due to a spontaneous mutation in the PHEX gene. #XLH
