Consanguineous - Definition


Definition


Consanguineous is an adjective describing two people having at least one ancestor in common. This ancestral link is called consanguinity. The closer the common ancestor is (father, mother, grandfather, grandmother), the higher the degree of consanguinity. In a child born from a father and mother who are consanguineous, the closer the consanguinity means the higher the risk of certain illnesses. In inhabited regions which are very isolated from the rest of the world, diseases tied to problems of consanguinity are frequent.
