Mother to child brachymetatarsia
Hi, I hear brachymetatarsia is hereditary so does it mean that a child or children will inherit from their parent in this case only the mother has it. Just a curious question. Thanks ND
the fact that the mother has brachymetatarsia does not mean the child must have it. there are chances that the child could have it but it is not invariable.
