Determining Genetic Risk

Case 6 - Albinism


Family history:

The Clark's, an African -American couple, have four sons. Two of these sons have albinism. These sons are the only affected individuals in the entire extended family. Even though they have received genetic counseling in the past they desire another consultation. They want to clarify what the chance is for a future child to have albinism. They also want to know what the chance is that a future pregnancy would be a female.
