[Ultrastructural lesions of axonal mitochondria in patients with childhood-onset Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease due to MFN2 mutations].

We present neuropathological findings based on sural nerve biopsy in six children with mutations of the mitofusin 2 gene (MFN2). All six children had severe axonal neuropathies (mild or severe hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy, HMSN), with onset in early childhood.
