Multiple familial trichoepithelioma

How is multiple familial trichoepithelioma inherited?

Susceptibility to multiple familial trichoepithelioma has an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance. This means that one mutated copy of the CYLD gene in each cell increases the risk that a person will develop the multiple familial trichoepithelioma. However, a second, non-inherited (acquired) mutation is needed for development of the skin tumors characteristic of this condition.
