MtDNA instability is associated with a wide spectrum of clinical presentations, from dominant or recessive progressive external ophthalmoplegia (PEO) to juvenile-onset spino-cerebellar ataxia and epilepsy (SCAE) or infantile Alpers-Huttenlocher syndrome. We present here the clinical and molecular features of a patient with a clinical presentation characterized initially by PEO with mtDNA multiple deletions lately evolving into a severe neurological syndrome, which included sensory and cerebellar ataxia, peripheral neuropathy, parkinsonism, and depression. This complex phenotype is the result of mutations in two distinct proteins, ANT1 and PolγA, which cause additive, deleterious effects on mtDNA maintenance and integrity. © 2008 Elsevier B.V.

Abstract

MtDNA instability is associated with a wide spectrum of clinical presentations, from dominant or recessive progressive external ophthalmoplegia (PEO) to juvenile-onset spino-cerebellar ataxia and epilepsy (SCAE) or infantile Alpers-Huttenlocher syndrome. We present here the clinical and molecular features of a patient with a clinical presentation characterized initially by PEO with mtDNA multiple deletions lately evolving into a severe neurological syndrome, which included sensory and cerebellar ataxia, peripheral neuropathy, parkinsonism, and depression. This complex phenotype is the result of mutations in two distinct proteins, ANT1 and PolγA, which cause additive, deleterious effects on mtDNA maintenance and integrity. © 2008 Elsevier B.V.
