Abstract

We report on a 25-year-old patient with isolated mitochondrial complex III deficiency and a new heteroplasmic mutation (T14849C) in the cytochrome b gene. He suffered from septo-optic dysplasia, retinitis pigmentosa, exercise intolerance, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and rhabdomyolysis. A HESX1 mutation was excluded as a cause of his septo-optic dysplasia. Low alpha-tocopherol concentrations in his muscles and an elevated urinary leukotriene E(4) excretion indicate increased production of reactive oxygen species.
