Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. More information about your daughters condition can be found here http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0002401/.

The answer to your question is yes! Waaredenburg syndrome is a genetic condition and therefore can be passed on through family generations. I hope this helps and if you have additional questions, please let us know.
