Homocystinuria is an inherited disorder of the metabolism of the amino acid methionine.
Homocystinuria is thought to be inherited as an autosomal recessive genetic trait, which means the gene defect is unknowingly passed down from generation to generation. This faulty gene only emerges when two carriers have children together and pass it to their offspring. For each pregnancy of two such carriers, there is a 25% chance that the child will be born with the disease and a 50% chance the child will be a carrier for the gene defect.
