Fifth New York STAR Update & Cocktail Reception
Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, or CMT, is a group of inherited disorders that affect the peripheral nerves, which are the nerves outside the brain and spinal cord. There are more than 70 kinds of CMT. Each kind is caused by a different kind of mutation, and more causes are being discovered every year.
CMT is just one kind of neuropathy (also called peripheral neuropathy). These names simply mean that the peripheral nerves are damaged. There are many other causes of neuropathy besides CMT, including the most common cause—diabetes.
CMT affects all people, all races, and all ethnic groups, throughout the world, affecting about 2.8 million people!
