I wrote this brief article on the way the SORD gene works (or fails to work) for the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation. SORD mutations cause “the most common autosomal recessive form of CMT2 (CMT2A1), autosomal recessive intermediate CMT (CMTRIA), and the overlapping category of distal hereditary motor neuropathy (dHMN).”
CMT1 types have commonly been referred to as “demyelinating” and CMT2 as “axonal,” which gives the impression the nature of the nerve damage between the two is fundamentally different.
At some point I’d like to create a page of CMT resources in Canada just to present that all in one place. If you have anything or anyone you think should be on the list, please let me know! 📣
