Difference between Autosomal and Sex chromosomal disorders

Chromosomal disorders: These genetic disorders are caused due to absence or excess or abnormal arrangement of one or more chromosomes. These are noninheritable and pedigree analysis of a family does not help in tracing the pattern of inheritance of such chromosomal disorders. These are two types: abnormalities due to aneuploidy and aberrations either in autosomes or in sex chromosomes.

Autosomal disorders:
1. These arise by gene mutations in autosomal chromosomes.
2. These disorders affect both the sexes, i.e., males and females.

4. The suffer is homozygous or heterozygous, e.g., Down’s syndrome, Huntington's disease’s chorea, sickle cell anemia, alkaptonuria.

Sex chromosomal disorders:
1. These arise by gene mutation in sex chromosomes (mostly X chromosomes.
2. These disorders affect the males more than the females.
3. The mutated gene is recessive.
4. The sufferer is hemizygous, e.g.,Klinefelter’s syndrome,Turner’s syndrome, super female, haemophilia, muscular dystrophy.
