Charcot–Marie tooth disease (CMT) is a heterogenous group of peripheral neuropathies caused by various genetic defects. Three cases of mitochondrial myopathy, neuropathy and gastrointestinal encephalopathy (MNGIE) which initially presented with a peripheral neuropathy resembling CMT are described here. The diagnosis in all three cases was made after they developed eye signs and abdominal complaints. Young patients with mutation negative CMT should be followed up to monitor for signs of MNGIE.
