DNAJB2-RELATED CHARCOT-MARIE-TOOTH DISEASE TYPE 2


Alternate names

DNAJB2-RELATED CHARCOT-MARIE-TOOTH DISEASE TYPE 2 Is also known as charcot-marie-tooth neuropathy, type 2t, charcot-marie-tooth disease, axonal, autosomal recessive, type 2t, dnajb2-related cmt2

Description

Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2T (CMT2T) is a slowly progressive autosomal recessive sensorimotor peripheral neuropathy with onset in middle age (Higuchi et al., 2016).For a phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of axonal CMT, see CMT2A1 (OMIM ).

Most common symptoms of DNAJB2-RELATED CHARCOT-MARIE-TOOTH DISEASE TYPE 2

  • Ataxia
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Gait disturbance
  • Cerebral atrophy

YOUNG ADULT-ONSET DISTAL HEREDITARY MOTOR NEUROPATHY


Alternate names

YOUNG ADULT-ONSET DISTAL HEREDITARY MOTOR NEUROPATHY Is also known as young adult-onset dhmn, autosomal recessive distal spinal muscular atrophy type 5, dsma5

Description

Young adult-onset distal hereditary motor neuropathy is a rare autosomal recessive distal hereditary motor neuropathy characterized by slowly progressive muscular weakness, hypotonia and atrophy of the lower limbs, more pronounced distally, leading to paralysis, and loss of tendon reflexes. Additional features may include pes cavus and mild dysphonia. The upper limbs are relatively spared.

Most common symptoms of YOUNG ADULT-ONSET DISTAL HEREDITARY MOTOR NEUROPATHY

  • Generalized hypotonia
  • Muscle weakness
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Skeletal muscle atrophy
  • Gait disturbance
