Disease Mitochondrial Encephalomyopathies

Name Mitochondrial Encephalomyopathies
Synonyms Encephalomyopathies, Mitochondrial | Encephalomyopathy, Mitochondrial | Mitochondrial Encephalomyopathy
Definition A heterogenous group of disorders characterized by alterations of mitochondrial metabolism that result in muscle and nervous system dysfunction. These are often multisystemic and vary considerably in age at onset (usually in the first or second decade of life), distribution of affected muscles, severity, and course. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp984-5)
