Hereditary neuropathy NOT PMP22 copy numberGene: EMILIN1
Missense mutations identified in two families. First family, proband presented with ascending and descending aortic aneurysms, bilateral lower leg and foot sensorimotor peripheral neuropathy, arthropathy, and increased skin elasticity. Variant segregated with disease in the affected proband, mother, and son. Second family, father and three affected children showed amyotrophy and weakness of the distal lower limbs, dating back to early childhood. Some functional studies performed in patient fibroblasts and zebrafish, however these were not conclusive as the two missense mutations are at different locations within the protein.
