Hip dysplasia was recently observed in association with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT). We retrospectively reviewed available radiographs of 74 of 100 children with clinically and electrodiagnostically proven CMT and noted six cases of hip dysplasia. Minor hip abnormalities, most commonly increased neck shaft angles, were noted in 21 other patients. Type I usually causes more weakness and had more hip dysplasia than type II. A female predominance was noted but may have resulted from sampling of more immature radiographs in males. Most dysplasia was asymptomatic and was detected only on screening radiographs.
