Argyll-Robertson-like pupils in the neural type of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease

Eur Neurol. 1977;16(1-6):172-5. doi: 10.1159/000114897.


The authors report of Argyll-Robertson-like pupils in three patients presenting the neural type of Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease with peroneal muscular atrophy. Up to now the light-near dissociation had been reported in the hypertrophic variety of CMT disease. Stress is laid upon the fact that the presence of the light-near dissociation in patients with CMT disease does not help in clinically differentiating the neural from the hypertrophic type of this disease.
