Charcot neuroarthropathy in patients with Charcot Marie Tooth Disease.

Charcot Marie Tooth disease (CMT) is the most common inherited neuropathy and is also called Hereditary Motor Sensory Neuropathy (HMSN). Whilst both motor and sensory deficits are present, motor deficits tend to predominate over sensory deficits. Charcot neuroarthropathic joints occur in conditions, most commonly diabetes nowadays, where joints are destroyed in association with reduced protective sensation, pain in particular. Three cases of development of Charcot joint disorders in patients with CMT are discussed and the literature is reviewed. Orthopaedic surgeons should be aware that Charcot joints can occur in CMT and surgery can be complicated by Charcot joints.
