Answer

As with other forms of CMT, clinical variation is common between and within CMT2 families, but in general, weakness is often less marked and onset is later. [66] CMT2 with later onset can be difficult to distinguish from acquired axonal neuropathies, especially when the family history is unclear, because of the lack of distinctive physical examination and electrophysiologic findings.
