The disorder can appear at any age, but it usually occurs in childhood or early adult life. The genetic pattern of this disease is mainly autosomal dominant trait, but occasionally as an autosomal recessive trait, and very rarely as an X-linked recessive disease. The prevalence of this disease ranges from 2.0 to 4.3 per 100000.
