Description Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is the most common inherited neuromuscular disorder. This case report will detail the events of a 31 year-old female undergoing a uterine ablation under general anesthesia. CMT is a genetically inherited disease with a prevalence of 1 in 2,500 people.1 CMT affects both the motor and sensory nerves in affected patients. CMT has a typical onset within the first two decades of life and shows a slow, continual progression for the remainder of the patient's life.2 These patients often require multiple orthopedic surgeries in the course of their life, necessitating the need for anesthesia professionals to be aware of the anesthetic risks associated with CMT.
