Biochemical, electron microscopic observations in muscle and liver of an infant dying at 20 months of age of a mitochondrial myopathy are described. Biochemical analysis of tissues revealed low levels of free, esterified and total carnitine and marked decrease of succinic-dehydrogenase activity while cytochrome c-oxidase was normal. Ultrastructural data showed a megaconial myopathy.
