Autosomal recessive

An inheritance pattern in which a person must inherit two copies of an abnormal gene (one from each parent) in order to develop the disease. If two individuals each carry one copy of an abnormal gene, then each child born to these two parents will have a 25% chance of receiving 2 copies of the abnormal gene and as a result, inherit the disease. Cystic fibrosis is an example of an autosomal recessive disease.
