  X-linked recessive



X-linked recessive

    In genetics, a defect that is carried on the X chromosome, and that can express itself only if both X chromosomes in an individual carry the defect (in females) or if the X chromosome carrying the defect is paired with a Y chromosome (in males). These defects are much more commonly expressed in males than in females.
