You have 3 open access pages.

The most relevant family history is that of first-degree relatives, the parents, siblings and children. The health of more distant relatives and certainly that of the spouse, although not a blood relative, can also be important to a patient's well-being.

Factors include:

  • general and psychiatric health
  • current age of family members
  • age and cause of death of family members
  • position in family and number of siblings
  • consanguinity (especially cousin marriages)
