abstract

  • A 24 years old male, who presented to us with uraemic symptoms secondary to chronic glomerulonephritis. On examination, he was found to have features of peripheral neuropathy which was confirmed as Charcot-Marie-Tooth type 1 on nerve conduction studies. Very few cases of glomerular disease, mainly focal segmental glomerulosclerosis have been associated with the Charcot-Marie-Tooth worldwide.
