The sick child does not carry the cyst gene. Therefore, Xiao Ming's children will not suffer from polycystic kidney disease, because Xiao Ming did not carry the cyst gene; but if Xiao Ming's wife, suffering from polycystic kidney disease, then Xiao Ming's children may also suffer from polycystic kidney disease.
