    Summary: Hereditary neuropathies represent approximately 40% of undiagnosed neuropathies in a tertiary clinic setting. The Charcot–Marie–Tooth neuropathies (CMT) are the most common. Mutations in more than 40 genes have been identified to date in CMT. Approximately 50% of CMT cases...

    Hereditary peripheral neuropathies are the most common monogenetically inherited diseases of the nervous system. The prevalence of the Hereditary Motor and Sensory Neuropathy Type 1A (HMSN 1A or Charcot-Marie-Tooth Neuropathy 1A, CMT1A) alone is estimated to be as high as 1/5000. In 1991, a...

    Background: Inherited polyneuropathies often go undiagnosed. We investigated whole exome sequencing (WES) in utility to identify the genetic causes of diverse forms of inherited polyneuropathies without genetic diagnosis. Methods: WES was applied to 24 cases from 15 kindreds. These kindreds had...
