This condition is inherited. There are X-linked and autosomal (non-X-linked) forms of the disease. It is also called the Aarskog-Scott syndrome for DJ Aarskog (1928-) and CI Scott, Jr. (1934-), Norwegian and American pediatricians, respectively, who described it in 1970-71. The gene for the X-linked form of the disease has been mapped to chromosome band Xp11.21.
