Four patients with Charcot-Marie amyotrophy were studied concerning vanadium metabolism. The method of Talvitie was used to determine the pressure of vanadium in blood serum. The metabolism of vanadium is discussed in relation to the amyotrophy. The patients present low values of vanadium in blood serum which are proportional to the severety of the disease.
