Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease type 1 is an inherited peripheral neuropathy characterized by demyelination and reduced nerve conduction velocities. We present a multi-generational family with peripheral neuropathy in whom clinical CMT panel testing failed to conclude a molecular diagnosis. We found a PMP2 pathogenic variant c.155T > C, p.(Ile52Thr) that segregates with disease suggesting that PMP2 variants should be considered in patients with neuropathy and that it may be prudent to include in clinical CMT gene panels.
