Tietz syndrome has an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance.
Tietz syndrome is caused by mutations in the MITF gene, located on human chromosome3p14.1-p12.3. It is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. This indicates that the defective gene responsible for a disorder is located on an autosome (chromosome 3 is an autosome), and only one copy of the defective gene is sufficient to cause the disorder, when inherited from a parent who has the disorder.
