    Fatty infiltrations in intrinsic foot muscles
     

    Fatty infiltration in intrinsic foot muscles. Plantar interossei muscles show Hiperintensity On T2FSE sequences because of severe atrophy.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal soft tissue; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Genetic defects;

    Severe atrophy (fatty infiltration) of both quadratus plantae muscles.

    Normal leg muscles

    Axial T1 FSE, Midportion thigh level. Note that the selective involvement of intrinsic foot muscles without leg muscle involvement is a characteristic pattern of CMT1A and CMT2A with minimal disease.
