Abstract

Hereditary neuropathy with liability to pressure palsies is associated with a deficiency in the Peripheral Myelin Protein 22 (PMP22). Most hereditary neuropathy with liability to pressure palsies cases are caused by a deletion of a 1.5 Mb region on chromosome 17p11.2-12 encompassing the PMP22 gene. We describe a hereditary neuropathy with liability to pressure palsies family that lacks the common deletion, but carries a small deletion spanning the 3' region of the PMP22 gene, causing only a partial deletion of one copy of the gene.
