There are some families with more than one family member with KC, but they are the minority. Most KC is 'random' with no one else in the family being affected. About 13% of cases involve other family members, though KC can skip generations and it takes several different genes to come together for KC to develop. There is quite a bit of research going on into the genetics of KC so hopefully we'll know more in the future.
