The importance of quantitative electron microscopy in studying hypertrophic neuropathies. A comparison between a case of Déjérine Sottas disease (HMSN III) and a case of the hypertrophic form of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (HMSN I).

Abstract

The electron microscopic features and quantitative morphometric data of the sural nerve in Déjérine-Sottas disease (HMSN III) and in the hypertrophic form of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (HMSN I) are reported. Both forms are characterized by onion bulb formations, but they differ in: a) increased incidence of mucoid connective tissue in DS disease; b) higher… (More)
