yes it is hereditary my younger sister has it and also a first cousin of mine it runs in my family so I wouldn't be surprised if more of my family hasn't got it but they just haven't been tested

Doctors at Stanford told me there was a slight hereditary connection that was under that was under investigation for hypersensitive pneumonitis I'm not knowing at this time if they have found out that for a fact.

No. It is my belief that it is not genetic, that being said however, I had physical components that predisposed me to contract this. Healthy people can breath in the Aspergillis Fungus with out any problems. But people with not good health such as autoimmune disorders, etc... are in danger and should take obvious precautions.

Patients with more predispocision being affected by this fungus are those that they have immuno-suppression or auto-immune disease, people who already have lung problems such as asthma or cystic fibrosis.
