A client has severe manifestations of an autosomal dominant disorder. The client's father is also affected by the disorder, but to a lesser degree. How would the nurse interpret this phenomenon?



▸ The mother must have an unexpressed form of the disorder.

▸ In this situation the child usually manifests the disorder at an older age than did the parent.

▸ This situation is an example of genetic anticipation.

▸ Environmental influences must have exacerbated the expression of the genetic tendency in the child.
