• We describe three patients with hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy type I coming from a family who suffered from Spanish toxic oil syndrome with neuromuscular manifestations. Their clinical course neither differed from other kin only affected with the inherited neuropathy nor from other patients with Spanish toxic oil syndrome studied by us. These findings suggest that patients with hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy do not exhibit a special susceptibility to vasculitic neuropathy associated with Spanish toxic oil syndrome.
