Charcot Marie Tooth disease: exacerbation in pregnancy



Charcot Marie Tooth disease: exacerbation in pregnancy



Revue Neurologique 156(10): 890-891



We report a case which illustrates the fact that an exacerbation of Charcot Marie Tooth disease, while rare, is possible during pregnancy. Moreover our case suggests the possibility of a positive effect of corticosteroids on such a complication, with an improvement of clinical symptoms as well as of electrophysiological results.
