Abstract

We report on a 5-year-old boy with clinical and neuroradiological evidence of Leigh syndrome and peripheral neuropathy. Skeletal muscle biopsy showed decreased cytochrome c oxidase stain. Ultrastructurally, the nerve biopsy showed a defect of myelination. Biochemical analyses of muscle homogenate showed cytochrome c oxidase deficiency (15% residual activity). SURF1 gene analysis identified a novel homozygous nonsense mutation which predicts a truncated surf1 protein. Copyright (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V.
