In brief: Familial

Is what i think you mean.
That term implies that there is a hereditary or genetic reason for the neuropathy. Typically you will find many family members with the disorder, and how many or how transmitted depends on how the condition is transmitted over generations. So 'familial' means running in the family.

In brief: Rare genetic disease

There are amyloid and non-amyloid classes, but either appears to be inherited via a dominant gene and varies in effects depending to which system is affected.
Contact a neuro-muscular specialist - probably a university hospital nearest you can provide referral information.
