The distal hereditary motor neuropathy (distal HMN) or the spinal form of Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease is an exclusively motor disorder of the peripheral nervous system. The disorder clinically resembles the hereditary motor and sensory neuropathies (HMSN) type I and type II or CMT type 1 and type 2. Distal HMN might also be related to the spinal(More)
A locus for autosomal dominant Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2 (CMT2A) was assigned by linkage analysis to chromosome 1p35-p36. We examined 11 unrelated CMT2 families for linkage to CMT2A using short tandem repeat (STR) polymorphisms. Only one family showed suggestive evidence for linkage to 1p35-p36. Further, because of an overlap in electrophysiologic(More)
