Results of Duffy (Fy) linkage confirm genetic heterogeneity in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1 (CMT1). Of 11 families informative for Fy, four showed probable linkage with CMT1, seven showed probable non-linkage and two showed definite non-linkage. These results suggest that Fy linked CMT1 may be less common than previously thought. These results combined with those of another DNA probe for the antithrombin III gene confirm that there are at least two gene loci for CMT1, termed 1A and 1B.
