Mitochondrial disorders may present from birth to adulthood and are characterized by dysfunction of the mitochondrial respiratory chain due to pathogenic variants in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) or nuclear DNA, with an estimated incidence of 1/5000 1. Mitochondrial disorders have a broad phenotypic spectrum and may fall into one of several classic phenotypic presentations (e.g., mitochondrial encephalopathy with lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes: MELAS; Leber hereditary optic neuropathy: LHON; myoclonic epilepsy with ragged red fibers: MERRF, Kearns-Sayre syndrome: KSS, among others) or may present with variable sympto...
