I happen to know the answer. In this condition there is a mutated gene on chromosome number 7. So that is the answer. There are 23 pairs of chromosomes in human body and they are inherited from our parents. Children with this condition may suffer from lung diseases. Adults however may develop diabetes or osteoporosis.
