We present a case report that a longitudinal calf MR evaluation was performed for a patient with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease who underwent bilateral reconstructive foot surgeries. A 39 years-old female was referred to our department because of severe bilateral cavus foot deformities and difficulty to walk. On radiological findings, severe bilateral cavus foot deformities were confirmed. On MR findings, fatty infiltrations were detected in the wide range of bilateral lower leg compartments. Difficulty to walk aggravated despite of the conservative treatment, so bilateral reconstructive foot surgeries were performed. She acquired plantigrade and better walking function postoperatively. Two years after surgery, no recurrence of cavus foot deformity was observed, but claw toe deformities and fatty infiltrations were mildly progressing. Since CMT is slowly progressive, we need to conduct a careful follow-up.
