Customer Question

Iam 45 and was diagnoised with CMT diease at 13. Sometimes when I walk into a dark room it is a very bright pale blue. It doesn't last long but I have also noticed with or without my glasses on, reading something looks like the letters but at the same time looks like ghost letters whith the letters. Could my diease be a factor in this? Why is this being looked at by pediatrics? Iam 45 now I have two adult children,3 grand babies 11 yr old boy,8 yr old girl,and a 5 yr old girl.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Hello, The condition affects nerves where axon sheath is damaged. Type one CMT manifests by 10-20 years.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Your symptoms related to vision may have bearing with the disease, though the nerves affected are mostly related to skeletal muscles.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

In a condition (varient) called CMTX, where there is sex chromosome linked transmission, central nerves like ophthalmic nerve may be affected.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Your son and grand children need to be watched but daughter may not have it.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

See link : http://rarediseases.about.com/cs/cmt/a/032001.htm

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

If it is sex linked variety, only males are affected with females having only mild symptoms, if at all. Please check your maternal side relatives for any one having this condition.

Customer : I am female and my father was1 of 9 children. I have tracked back 5 generations no one else in my family has it or had it. The only two other cases I have heard of was a great,great granddad and a distant female cousin. Why is it that my grandmother only gave it to one of her children(she did not have the disease) and she had 8 boys and 1daughter. In your professional opinion should I get myself typed to see if I do have the CMTX?
Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Hello,

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Sorry I had to go offline for clinical work. There is no need for further typing but anyone in younger generation having any neurological symptoms should get investigated. There are number of types of genetic variants.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

The condition can skip one or many generations or may arise afresh without genetic origin also. Your dad had it so more likely to be genetic transmission.

Customer : I accidentally consulted with a pediatric Dr when a nurologist.
