Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) is a disease that is highly heterogeneous, both clinically and genetically. Clinical and electrophysiological data are essential for diagnosis. Children with CMT experience acquired foot weakness, contracture and deformity (pes cavus and hammer toes) from an early age. Early intervention targeting the foot and ankle may prevent long-term disability in CMT. Here we present a CMT patient with acquired pes cavus and hammer toes and review the literature briefly for diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of CMT. As a result we conclude that CMT should also come into mind in the differential diagnosis of acquired pes cavus and hammer toes.
