Abstract

Mitochondrial disease involving complex II is rare among respiratory chain deficiencies and its genetic cause remains often unknown. Two main clinical presentations are associated with this biochemical defect: mitochondrial encephalomyopathy and susceptibility to tumors. Only one homozygous SDHBmutation has been described in a patient with mitochondrial disorder. We report here two sisters, who presented highly different phenotypes (neurological impairmentwith leukoencephalopathy vs. asymptomatic status) and harbored the same homozygous SDHB mutation, suggesting reduced penetrance.
