Wegener's Granulomatosis and how it impacts off spring

Patient : I would like to know if it is likely that Wegener's Granulomatosis could be passed down to me from my mother? My mother passed away from it at age 69 years.I would also like to see a picture of how it impacts the skin because I have an odd skin condition that I wonder if it could be from Wegner's Granulomatosis although I have never been screened for Wegners. Thank you for your help I would suggest auto immune disorders for this category Thanks
