It's a X linked hereditary disorder. Mother is carrier of the gene and disease never manifests in girls but girls carry  the genes. The disease is always found in males. It is advisable that you choose your profession wisely and avoid profession like train driver, surgeon, pilot etc. At present there is no treatment but in future gene therapy may be  the figure treatment.
