However, the fact that the recurrence risk is only about 1% and the very low likelihood that both identical twins are affected has been interpreted to mean that genetic factors are uncommon (78). Individual families with an affected aunt, parent and child have been reported (86). No distinctive features of the atresia have been described in these individuals.
