Correction

After the publication of this work [1] it was brought to the authors attention that Table three (Table 1 here) stated that the patient with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease had scoliosis, when the patient did not have scoliosis. The corrected table is given below:

p.Phe647Ser

Age at onset

8 years

2–11.5 years
