Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The previously unrecognised association of myoclonus in two patients with LHON with the 11778/ND4 pathogenic mutation is described. EEG failed to disclose epileptic figures, and a back averaging study suggested that myoclonus was cortical in origin in both patients.
