My youngest child, boy, was diagnosed with the above syndrome.

It is x-linked. My daughters are of shidduchim age. The doctor said it may be genetic and that my daughters, if carriers (50% possibility) have a 50% chance of their male offspring being afflicted. Does anyone know of a test that may be taken to check if they are carriers?

Doc says it may be 'spontaneous' in that only this child was affected. In that case my daughters are not carriers at all.
