What are the 3 types of genetic disorders?
There are three types of genetic disorders:
- Single-gene disorders, where a mutation affects one gene. Sickle cell anemia is an example.
- Chromosomal disorders, where chromosomes (or parts of chromosomes) are missing or changed.
- Complex disorders, where there are mutations in two or more genes.
How many diseases are genetic?
Many human diseases have a genetic component to them. There are over 6,000 genetic disorders, many of which are fatal or severely debilitating.

What is the most common fatal genetic disease?
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common, fatal genetic disease in the United States. About 30,000 people in the United States have the disease.
What is the rarest genetic disorder?
According to the Journal of Molecular Medicine, Ribose-5 phosphate isomerase deficiency, or RPI Deficinecy, is the rarest disease in the world with MRI and DNA analysis providing only one case in history.
What is the most common chromosomal disorder?
The most common type of chromosomal abnormality is known as aneuploidy, an abnormal chromosome number due to an extra or missing chromosome. Most people with aneuploidy have trisomy (three copies of a chromosome) instead of monosomy (single copy of a chromosome).
What classifies a disease as a genetic disease?
A genetic disease or disorder is the result of changes, or mutations, in an individual’s DNA. Some genetic diseases are called Mendelian disorders—they are caused by mutations that occur in the DNA sequence of a single gene. These are usually rare diseases; some examples are Huntington’s disease and cystic fibrosis.
