Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease is a heterogeneous group of inherited distal symmetric polyneuropathies associated with mutations in genes encoding components essential for normal functioning of the Schwann cell and axon. TRIM2, encoding a ligase that ubiquitinates the neurofilament light chain, was recently associated with early-onset neuropathy in a single patient. We report a TRIM2 homozygous missense mutation (c.2000A > C; p.D667A) in a patient with peripheral neuropathy and bilateral vocal cord paralysis, allowing for further delineation of the associated phenotypic spectrum.
