Several genetic disorders are caused by genes on the X chromosomes.
Females are considered to be carriers. This is because females have another X chromosome without the mutation that prevents them from getting this disease. If a woman is a carrier, she has a 50% risk to pass on her X chromosome with the mutation.
ALD (Adrenoleukodystrophy) It's a rare genetic disease that mostly affects males, but the gene for the disease is gained from the mother. Females are simply the carriers of the disease and are usually not affected by it.

Edward Hindle has written: 'Flies in relation to disease' -- subject(s): Insects as carriers of disease, Diptera, Flies as carriers of disease, Flies
Alzheimer's disease affects both females and males.
