Hello Dr. HAD, Thank you for consulting JA,
I am sorry to hear about how Hurricane Katrina affected you so drastically.

I searched the OMIM website for genetic information on DISH and found no clear genetic link. However, there have been cases of multiple family members with the condition. The occurrence seems to be mainly linked to age and sex (older males). Prolonged use of isoretinol and some metabolic disease have been implicated as cause.

Here is the website that I consulted which is a reputable source of information on genetic causes of disease:

Here is another resource about the disease in general form the National Institute of Health (NIH):

I hope that you find this information helpful.
