Patients with hereditary neuropathy being at high risk of severe vincristin neurotoxicity are well known. Here, along with the review of the literature, we described two patients with unrecognized hereditary neuropathy who developed foot drop following low dose vincristin therapy. With this report we wanted to emphasize the importance of detailed neurologic examination and history taking before initiating therapy.
