A dominant disorder means that it only takes one abnormal gene in a pair of genes to have the disorder.
Because in autosomal dominant disorders one gene is abnormal, people with this disorder have about a 50 percent chance of passing the abnormal gene to their offspring.
Decreased penetrance means that not all people who inherit the abnormal gene develop symptoms.

Autosomal dominant-A pattern of inheritance in which only one of the two copies of an autosomal gene must be abnormal for a genetic condition or disease to occur.
An abnormal condition resulting from a previous disease or disorder.
Spasticity is an abnormal increase in muscle tone.
Spasticity can be painful, especially if joints are pulled into abnormal positions or if range of motion is limited.
During this procedure, the tendon attached to a spastic muscle is cut and transferred to a different site, preventing the muscle from being pulled into an abnormal position.
Arthrodesis is a fusing of bones that normally move independently to limit the ability of a spastic muscle to pull the joint into an abnormal position.

After that time, it is considered abnormal for an adolescent to miss three consecutive periods.

Other abnormal locations may also lead to compression and impaired flow.
Lymphocytic leukemia-An acute form of childhood leukemia characterized by the development of abnormal cells in the bone marrow.
Lymphoma-A diverse group of cancers of the lymphatic system characterized by abnormal growth of lymphatic cells.
The mutation was transmitted to later generations because people who carried a single copy of the mutated gene had a modified (but not abnormal) inflammatory response that may have protected them against some infectious agent at that time.
An abnormal pyrin protein associated with FMF may be partly functional but unstable.
In some instances, the abnormal pyrin itself seems to be "stressed", and loses its ability to regulate the inflammatory response to trauma.
Unexplained recurrent fevers, polyserositis, skin rash, and/or joint pain; abnormal blood studies (see below); and kidney or other disease associated with amyloidosis.
An atrial septal defect (ASD) is an abnormal opening in the muscular wall separating the left and right upper chambers (atria) of the heart.
This abnormal opening is called an atrial septal defect and causes blood from the left atrium to flow (or "shunt") across the hole into the right atrium.
Abnormal openings also form in the upper part of the atrial septum (called sinus venosus ASD) where the superior vena cava and right atrium join, and lower parts of the atrial septum (called primum ASD).
Abnormal openings in the atrial septum are twice as common in females as in males.
These abnormalities can go unnoticed if the opening is small and produces no abnormal symptoms.
Some heart murmurs (abnormal heart sounds) can indicate an atrial septal defect.
The closure device stays in place permanently to stop the abnormal flow of blood between the atria.
This may occur for many reasons, including Chiari malformation, abnormal cysts within the brain, and infections such as meningitis.
Sometimes, though, a child may suffer several years of frustrating failure and abnormal development or behavior before the problem is recognized and he or she is properly diagnosed.
Families or individuals who regularly consume a high-fat diet consisting of animal products, fast foods, and refined foods may also benefit from being tested for abnormal cholesterol levels.
It allows physicians to treat patients who have normal or close to normal results from a lipid panel but abnormal particle size.
These organic causes of headache may include hydrocephalus (abnormal build-up of fluid in the brain), infection of the brain, tumor, or other conditions.
Abnormal levels of this hormone can affect fertility and/or cause problems with the pregnancy and possibly affect the health of the baby.
Cardiac defects are not unusual in the babies of women with abnormal blood sugars during that time.
Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia is a condition characterized by abnormal blood vessels which are delicate and prone to bleeding.
Should the behavior pattern of crying suddenly change and be associated with fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or other abnormal symptoms, parents should call the doctor immediately.
Most congenital cardiovascular defects obstruct the flow of blood in the heart or nearby blood vessels, or cause an abnormal flow of blood through the heart.
An arrhythmia is an abnormal heart beat.
Atrioventricular canal defect (also called endocardial cushion defect or atrioventricular septal defect) is a large hole in the septum, accompanied by abnormal tricuspid and mitral valves that are not formed as individual valves.
Instead, the pulmonary veins drain through abnormal connections to the right atrium.
Some heart murmurs (abnormal heart sounds) can indicate a congenital heart defect.
Blood and urine tests are performed to detect the presence of any abnormal substances that may indicate congenital cardiovascular defects.
Special monitors may be used to evaluate an abnormal heart rhythm.
When a very rapid, abnormal heart rhythm is detected, the ICD delivers energy to the heart muscle to cause it to regain a normal rhythm.
This condition is considered to be a possible precursor to cervical cancer and is diagnosed as an abnormal Pap smear.

The same test or a different test can be used, but the result of the second test must be abnormal as well in order to establish a diagnosis of diabetes.
For this reason, abnormal glucose test results must be interpreted by a physician.
The classical incision provides a larger opening than a low transverse incision and is used in emergency situations, such as placenta previa, preterm and macrosomic fetuses, abnormal presentation, and multiple births.
Some research suggests that impulse control disorders are linked to certain hormones, abnormal nerve impulses, and variations in brain chemistry and function.

Although it is normal to lose between 25 and 100 hairs per day, any disruption of the hair growth cycle may cause abnormal hair loss.
