Abstract

We report a patient with necrotizing encephalomyelopathy (Leigh's syndrome) associated with a deficiency of pyruvate dehydrogenase complex activity. The underlying mutation is an A to C transversion in the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex E1 alpha subunit gene. As the E1 alpha subunit is encoded on the X chromosome, this observation confirms that some patients with Leigh's syndrome may potentially exhibit X-linked inheritance.
