Abstract

Leigh syndrome represents one of the most common pediatric-onset mitochondrial diseases. It can occur due to mitochondrial DNA encoded or nuclear DNA encoded mutations. Children generally present with symtoms from infancy or a regression in functioning after a period of typical development. Symptoms are predominantly due to basal ganglia, brainstem or cerebellar dysfunction. The disease is progressive over months to years.
