Aside brain injuries and other physical trauma, can amnesia be caused by natural or genetic factors?

Amnesia due to genetic factors is rare but its possible especially in cases of dissociative amnesia and amnesia can also be caused naturally by aging..when people get older, they tend to forget a lot..

Most percent of amnesia is caused by physical factors like lack of sleep, trauma or aging but I've never experienced any genetic case of amnesia in all my years of practice..

Amnesia is the inability to remember events for a period of time, often due to brain injury, illness or the effects of drugs or alcohol, you need to have memories at least forget so it's not really hereditary..

What's the difference between amnesia and dementia?
Amnesia is a memory loss that involves the inability to recall information while dementia on the other hand side is a mental condition in which daily activities are impaired.

Dementia is not really a specific disease, It is a group of conditions characterised by impairment of at least two brain functions, such as memory loss and judgement.
