Abstract

Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) syndrome comprises of a group of hereditary sensori-motor neuropathies (HMSN). The most common form seen in the population is the autosomal dominant (AD) demyelinating type. Another form is the rare autosomal recessive (AR) variety, which is typically distributed worldwide amongst populations with inherent practices of consanguinity. This report describes two brothers belonging to a nomadic gypsy tribe of Maharashtra; both being afflicted with the AR form of CMT.
