Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2C (CMT2C) is a very rare form of CMT. Individuals with this condition may have diaphragm or vocal cord paresis in addition to the other problems associated with CMT. Mild sensory loss has also been noted in some individuals. CMT type 2C is caused by mutations in the TRPV4 gene on chromosome 12q24.
