Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disorder


Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disorder, also known as hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy, is a group of inherited neurological disorders characterized by progressive damage to the peripheral nerves, leading to muscle weakness, sensory loss, and foot deformities. Symptoms typically begin in adolescence or early adulthood and can vary widely in severity, even among affected family members. While there is no cure for CMT, management focuses on symptom relief, physical therapy, orthopedic interventions, and assistive devices to improve mobility and quality of life.
