Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 4F (CMT4F) is a severe demyelinating subtype of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 4 characterized by the childhood onset of a slowly-progressing typical CMT phenotype (i.e. distal muscle weakness and atrophy as well as pes cavus) that presents severe sensory loss (frequently with sensory ataxia) moderately to severely reduced motor nerve conduction velocities and almost invariable absence of sensory nerve action potentials and delayed motor milestones.
