Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease 1A (CMT1A) is the most common autosomal dominant demyelinating sensorimotor polyneuropathy. A few patients with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease were reported in the literature to have epilepsy. We report on an African-American boy with CMT1A, with duplication of peripheral myelin protein 22 gene, who also developed intractable generalized tonic-clonic seizures and audiovisual hallucinations.
