Morphea and Genetic issues

3 posts in this topic

I'm new to the site and became a member so that I can learn more about Morphea. I manage an Egg Donor agency and I have a potential egg donor who has been diagnosed with Morphea. I need to find out if this can be passed down genetically to her eggs? Does anyone know the answer or where I might research to further help this donor? Thanks for your help in advance!

Dear Stacie,

 

I have checked with our ISN Medical Advisory Board about this. The answer is that there is no risk of passing morphea scleroderma onto offspring. The genetic studies on scleroderma apply to systemic scleroderma (systemic sclerosis) and not to morphea.

 

So I suspect that's happy news for your client?

The most important thing in the world to know about scleroderma is sclero.org.

Thanks so much for looking in to this for me! It is great news as she can be a donor like she wants to be and I feel that she is a wonderful candidate for the program. Thanks again for your help and I look forward to learning more about Morphea.
