a Clinical features of individual A.III-1, aged 37 years, demonstrating bilateral pes cavus, distal hypotrophies in both calves and muscle hypotrophies in the hands, more pronounced for the thenar muscle in comparison with the hypothenar ones. b-e. Magnetic resonance images of individual A.III-1 performed at the age of 37 years. Non-enhanced T1, T2 and proton density (PD) images are shown. b-d. The lateral compartments of the calves, including peroneus longus and brevis muscles are more severely affected, followed by extensor digitorum brevis and tibialis anterior muscles. The posterior compartment of the calves seems relatively preserved. e At thigh level the muscles are preserved as well, with slight changes visible in semimembranosus and semitendinosus muscles
