AUTOSOMAL RECESSIVE INTERMEDIATE CHARCOT-MARIE-TOOTH DISEASE TYPE B


Alternate names

AUTOSOMAL RECESSIVE INTERMEDIATE CHARCOT-MARIE-TOOTH DISEASE TYPE B Is also known as ri-cmtb, charcot-marie-tooth neuropathy, recessive intermediate b, ri-cmt type b

Description

Autosomal recessive intermediate Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type B is an extremely rare subtype of autosomal recessive intermediate Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease characterized by a CMT neuropathy associated with developmental delay, self-abusive behavior, dysmorphic features and vestibular Schwannoma. Motor nerve conduction velocities demonstrate features of both demyelinating and axonal pathology.

Most common symptoms of AUTOSOMAL RECESSIVE INTERMEDIATE CHARCOT-MARIE-TOOTH DISEASE TYPE B

  • Global developmental delay
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Areflexia
  • Hyporeflexia
