It is said that aceruloplasminemia is a disease that is genetically passed on, autosomal recessive, I think, but don't hold me accountable on that one :-). So what does this actually mean? In concrete terms, who can inherit aceruloplasminemia? Do your parents both have to have it, or at least one of them? Or can you get aceruloplasminemia from some grandpa you never even met?
