Abstract

Leigh's syndrome (LS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder with onset in infancy or early childhood. We report on two unrelated children with LS and cytochrome c oxidase deficiency. Genetic analysis revealed the presence of mutations in the SURF1 gene. In addition to the classical criteria of LS, both cases presented atypical clinical features and brain MRI abnormalities, contributing to a better clinical and neuroradiological characterization of this syndrome.
