Porokeratosis of Mibelli: If we have kids will they get it?

Hi, my husband has Porokeratosis of Mibelli, the juvenile onset type on his left hand and all the way up his arm. He has had it since he was a baby and now he is 27.

Question: We want to have children someday and I was wondering if anybody knew the likeliness of our children getting it? I read in a book once that each child would have a 50% chance of getting porokeratosis. Is that true?

Anybody have children who got porokeratosis from you, the parent?
