There is little published information on the autopsy findings in hereditary sensory neuropathy type I (HSN I), and none in genetically confirmed cases. We report the neuropathological findings in a 93-year-old woman with a disease of unusually late onset, who was part of a large HSN I kindred and in whom genetic analysis confirmed an SPTLC1 T399G mutation.
