A European collaboration on Charcot-Marie-Tooth type 1 (CMT1) disease and hereditary neuropathy with liability to pressure palsies (HNPP) was established to estimate the duplication and deletion frequency, respectively, on chromosome 17p11.2 and to make an inventory of mutations in the myelin genes, peripheral myelin protein 22 (PMP22), myelin protein zero (MPZ) and connexin 32 (Cx32) located on chromosomes 17p11.2, 1q21-q23 and Xq13.1, respectively. In 70.7% of 819 unrelated CMT1 patients, the 17p11.2 duplication was present. In 84.0% of 156 unrelated HNPP patients, the 17p11.2 deletion was present. In the nonduplicated CMT1 patients, several different mutations were identified in the myelin genes PMP22, MPZ and Cx32.
