Genetic Causes for Late Onset Neuropathy

The genetic landscape of axonal neuropathies in the middle-aged and elderly: Focus on MME

Slowly progressive health issues in the elderly are usually equated to a general age-related decline. In some patients, however, these health issues may be manifestations of late onset genetic disorders. A recent study, which was co-authored by researchers from CENTOGENE, supports this view by identifying genetic etiologies in a surprisingly large fraction of elderly patients with neuropathies. The findings were published in Neurology.
