Can schwannomatosis be passed on in families?

The genetics of schwannomatosis are not yet clearly understood so it can be difficult in some families to determine who might be at risk of developing symptoms of this condition. In some families, it appears that there is up to a 50% chance of a child inheriting schwannomatosis from an affected parent. In most families, the chance of an affected parent having an affected child appears to be less than 50%.
