MELAS


Alternate names

MELAS Is also known as mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes, melas syndrome, mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes

Description

MELAS (Mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke) syndrome is a rare progressive multisystemic disorder characterized by encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke-like episodes. Other features include endocrinopathy, heart disease, diabetes, hearing loss, and neurological and psychiatric manifestations.

Most common symptoms of MELAS

MITOCHONDRIAL DNA-ASSOCIATED LEIGH SYNDROME


Alternate names

MITOCHONDRIAL DNA-ASSOCIATED LEIGH SYNDROME Is also known as maternally-inherited infantile subacute necrotizing encephalopathy, mtdna-associated leigh syndrome, mils, maternally-inherited leigh disease

Description

Maternally inherited Leigh syndrome is a rare subtype of Leigh syndrome (see this term) characterized clinically by encephalopathy, lactic acidosis, seizures, cardiomyopathy, respiratory disorders and developmental delay, with onset in infancy or early childhood, and resulting from maternally-inherited mutations in mitochondrial DNA.
