In brief: Of the many types &

Subtypes of cmt, the more common are inherited as mutations in one or more genes from either parent in an autosomal dominant pattern (50% chance for each child to inherit it.
) some types are autosomal recessive; each child has a 25% chance if both parents are carriers. X-linked types & those from mutations in mitochondrial dna, come from mother. Some people have more than one type.See genedx.Com.
