    Optic Neuropathy in Charcot–Marie–Tooth Disease

    Background: Charcot–Marie–Tooth disease Type 2A (CMT2A) presents with optic atrophy in a subset of patients, but the prevalence and severity of optic nerve involvement in relation to other CMT subtypes has not been explored. Methods: Patients with genetically confirmed CMT2A (n = 5), CMT1A (n = 9) and CMTX1 (n = 10) underwent high- and low-contrast acuity testing using Sloan letter charts, and circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular total retinal, RNFL, and ganglion cell layer/inner plexiform layer thickness was measured using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT). We used age- and gender-adjusted linear regression to compare contrast ...
