An autosomal dominant inheritance pattern with reduced penetrance (10–20 %) was demonstrated prior to discovery of a genetic locus. Early registry data also suggested genetic anticipation, but later reanalysis with more families and longer follow-up intervals suggest that genetic anticipation is not a feature of familial PAH [4]. Early study of HPAH carried hopes of elucidating the underlying genetic and pathobiologic basis of the disease [5, 6].
