Human osteoarthritis (OA) is a heterogeneous and multifactorial disease with multiple pathogenetic mechanisms implicated in its development and progression. Despite its complex clinical expression, it appears that some forms of OA have a heritable component. This article briefly updates the reader on recent research that addresses the subject of heredity as one of significance in the etiology of OA.
