Summary or Abstract : Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is usually a non life-threatening hereditary, debilitating and progressive muscular atrophy and sensory neuropathy of the distal extremities. Signs of the disease present commonly in childhood or in young adulthood and the level of disability can be highly variable within and between families. Research addressing specific psychosocial and emotional issues that face individuals with CMT is limited.A study of 14 individuals with a clinical and/or molecular diagnosis of CMT (ages 32-74 years) is presented here, depicting their experiences of living with a disabling genetic disorder. This study identifies and explores, within its limited boundaries, the life issues that may face individuals with CMT (e.g. anger, quality of life issues, embarrassment, guilt and fear). This study highlights that there are emotional and psychosocial issues specific to persons at different life stages that may require a different focus and approach in the genetic counseling setting.
