abstract

  • Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease, a hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy, has subtypes with varied inheritance patterns and phenotypic presentation. Subtypes additionally vary by genetic variants in a number of genes. Pathogenic variants in the VCP gene have newly been associated with CMT type 2. We present a family with CMT type 2 with a novel heterozygous VCP variant and phenotypic variability between the proband, his brother, and father.
