Resumo: The appearance of Guillain-Barré syndrome in a 9-year-old girl led to the detection of a hereditary neuropathy in her family. This neuropathy showed clinical and electrophysiological characteristics of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. Only nerve biopsy performed in a sister of the proband allowed diagnosis of tomaculous neuropathy which presented unusual clinical, electrophysiological and bioptic aspects.
