Summary

Hereditary neuropathy with or without age-related macular degeneration is a complex autosomal dominant syndrome characterized by a variable peripheral neuropathy resembling demyelinating Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (see, e.g., CMT1A, 118220) and/or axonal CMT (see, e.g., CMT2A1, 118210) with sensorimotor impairment mainly of the distal lower extremities, or spinal CMT, also known as distal hereditary motor neuropathy (see, e.g., HMN1; 182960) with intact sensation. Age-related macular degeneration, if present, shows very late onset in the seventies or eighties. In addition, some patients may show hyperelasticity of the skin or joints. The age at onset of neuropathy and severity of the disorder is highly variable, even within families (summary by Auer-Grumbach et al., 2011). For a phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of age-related macular degeneration, see 603075. [from OMIM]
