Abstract

We describe a 60 years-old patient presenting with late onset myoclonic seizures, progressive neurological impairment and mental deterioration. Neurophysiological investigations showed marked photosensitivity, a startle reaction, a cortical-subcortical myoclonus. Biochemical study on muscle and skin biopsy was consistent with mitochondrial encephalomyopathy.
