Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors evaluated quality of life in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease by administering the Medical Outcome Study Short Form-36 (SF-36) questionnaire to 121 Italian patients. Patients scored lower on all of the SF-36 scales compared with Italian normative data. Scores were lower in nonworking vs working patients, women vs men, and older vs younger patients, but not between patients with demyelinating vs axonal forms or between patients who had undergone orthopedic foot surgery vs those who had not.
