  1. Hi,
    I have a great niece Logan who was diagnosed with Type 1 SMA and both her parents carry the Type 1 gene which was not known until she was diagnosed at 2 months old when she was rushed to the hospital. She has a brother who is 6 but he is fine (assuming he is carrying the Type 1 gene). My question is if one spouse carries Type 1 and your other spouse carries say Type 2,3 or 4 can you have a child born with either Type SMA or do both spouses have to carry the same type SMA gene for your child to possibly get diagnosed with SMA?
