Answer

In a series of 61 patients with CMT1A, 34 patients presented with the classic Charcot-Marie-Tooth phenotype, and 27 patients had additional features such as CNS signs, prominent muscle cramps, tremor, or focal peripheral neuropathies. [65] CNS features should not be assumed to be due to CMT and always warrant further investigation.
