Advances in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease

Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease is a group of clinically and genetically heterogeneous diseases, characterised by damage to the peripheral nerves of the upper and lower limbs.

This damage mainly causes muscle weakness, hand and foot sensory disorders (and at times, pain) and balance disorders. Most of the time, the condition begins in childhood or young adulthood, with walking difficulties or foot deformities.

This document, published to coincide with the AFM- Téléthon General Meeting 2022, presents news from the past year about research on Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (international symposia, ongoing clinical trials or studies, scientific and medical publications, etc.).
