Charcot-Marie-Tooth, or CMT, is the most commonly inherited peripheralneuropathy and is found worldwide among all races and ethnic groups.
Discovered in 1886 by three physicians, Jean-Martin Charcot,Pierre Marie, and Howard Henry Tooth, CMT affects an estimated 2.6million people worldwide.
CMT usually isn’t life-threatening and almost never affects brain function. It is not contagious, but it is hereditary and can be passed down from one generation to the next.
