Can you have the gene without physical symptoms? 

My daughter is married to a guy and both his mom and younger brother have BOR syndrome. His 18 year old brother is now on the kidney transplant list having had his one kidney removed just yesterday. My daughter's husband does not have Bor nor does his older brother. I'm wondering though if my son-in-law can pass the syndrome on to a future child even though he himself has no symptoms. Should he be tested before they try to become pregnant?

Thanks, Marcia

Re: Can you have the gene without physical symptoms? 

Hi Marcia,

Thanks for your email, obviously I am not a doctor so you will need to get advice elsewhere. I'm not real sure about this one. I do know that BOR is extremely hard to diagnose and if you carry the gene it is 50 per cent chance in passing it on. In our case my husband and I both do not carry the gene and ours was spontaneous! There are not many places that test for BOR and the ones that do can't guarantee a result its a bit like the lottery. I wish the best of luck to your family and please keep me informed. 
Regards
fFiona
