I was just wondering if anyone could help me with my question. My son was diagnosed 6 months ago with CMT( a form of MD). Everything that I have read about it says that cmt kids are able to walk most of there lives. My son is only 14 and has already lost the ability to walk or stand. He is also severely Autistic. Could he have been diagnosed wrong?

  • I have CMT and a few of my family members also have it. I hope you can join CMTUS@yahoogroups.com... We have a great group and maybe able to guide you in the right direction. It does sound rare for CMT but then again CMT can do just about anything.Jenny
