Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1A (CMT1A) is the more frequent cause of demyelinating CMT, and CMT2A is the most common cause of axonal CMT. We conducted a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study on 39 CMT1A and 21 CMT2A patients to compare their neuroimaging patterns and correlate with clinical features. CMT1A patients showed selective fatty infiltration with a preference for anterior and lateral compartment muscles, whereas CMT2A patients showed a preference for superficial posterior… CONTINUE READING
