De-novo mutation in hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy type I.

Isolated cases of hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy type I (HMSN I, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1) have been thought to be most frequently autosomal recessive. We have found that a recently discovered duplication in chromosome 17, responsible for most cases of autosomal dominant HMSN I, is present as a de-novo mutation in 9 out of 10 sporadic patients. This finding has important implications for genetic counselling of isolated patients with HMSN I.[1]
