Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is one of the most common inherited neurological disorders, and nearly all cases are inherited. CMT damages the body's peripheral nerves, making them unable to activate muscles or relay sensory informaton from the. This volume discusses developments in research and clinical aspects of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT), the most common peripheral neuropathy in humans.

The genetic causes of most of the demyelinating forms of CMT have now been identified, and the molecular biology of peripheral nervous structure and the function of many of the molecules involved in the pathogenesis of CMT are. Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is one of a group of disorders that cause damage to the peripheral nerves—the nerves that transmit information and signals from the brain and spinal cord to and from the rest of the body, as well as sensory information such as touch back to the spinal cord and brain.

CMT can also directly affect the nerves. Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a genetic nerve condition that primarily affects the feet and hands, may have no cure, but it can be managed with physical therapy and attention to care.

Charcot–Marie–Tooth (CMT) is a group of inherited neuropathies that is comprised of several major types (CMT1, CMT2, CMT4, and CMTX) based on inheritance pattern (dominant, recessive, or X-linked) and whether the primary pathology is located in the myelin or axon.
