  • Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy
    Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) or Leber optic atrophy is a mitochondrially inherited (transmitted from mother to offspring) degeneration of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) and their axons that leads to an acute or subacute loss of central vision; this affects predominantly young adult males.
  • Friedreich's ataxia
    Friedreich's ataxia is an autosomal recessive inherited disease that causes progressive damage to the nervous system.
  • Cerebrotendineous xanthomatosis
    Cerebrotendineous xanthomatosis or cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis (CTX), also called cerebral cholesterosis, is an autosomal recessive form of xanthomatosis.
  • Kearns–Sayre syndrome
    Kearns–Sayre syndrome (abbreviated KSS), also known as oculocraniosomatic disorder or oculocraniosomatic neuromuscular disorder with ragged red fibers, is a mitochondrial myopathy with a typical onset before 20 years of age.
  • Leigh disease
    Leigh disease is a rare inherited neurometabolic disorder that affects the central nervous system.
  • MELAS syndrome
    Mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke-like episodes – abbreviated to MELAS – is one of the family of mitochondrial cytopathies, which also include MERRF, and Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy.
  • Wolfram syndrome
    Wolfram syndrome, also called DIDMOAD (diabetes insipidus, diabetes mellitus, optic atrophy, and deafness), is a rare autosomal-recessive genetic disorder that causes childhood-onset diabetes mellitus, optic atrophy, and deafness as well as various other possible disorders.
  • Chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia
    Chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia (CPEO), also known as progressive external ophthalmoplegia (PEO), is a type of eye disorder characterized by slowly progressive inability to move the eyes and eyebrows.
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
    Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a medical condition characterized by long-term fatigue and other symptoms that limit a person's ability to carry out ordinary daily activities.
  • MERRF syndrome
    MERRF syndrome (or Myoclonic Epilepsy with Ragged Red Fibers) is a mitochondrial disease.
  • Diabetes mellitus and deafness
    Diabetes mellitus and deafness (DAD) or maternally inherited diabetes and deafness (MIDD) is a subtype of diabetes which is caused from a point mutation at position 3243 in human mitochondrial DNA, which consists of a circular genome.
  • Pearson syndrome
    Pearson syndrome is a mitochondrial disease characterized by sideroblastic anemia and exocrine pancreas dysfunction.
  • Neuropathy, ataxia, and retinitis pigmentosa
    Neuropathy, ataxia, and retinitis pigmentosa, also known as NARP syndrome, is a rare disease with mitochondrial inheritance that causes a variety of signs and symptoms chiefly affecting the nervous system.
  • Mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalopathy syndrome
    Mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalopathy syndrome (MNGIE) is a rare autosomal recessive mitochondrial disease.
  • Mitochondrial myopathy
    Mitochondrial myopathies are types of myopathies associated with mitochondrial disease.
  • Coenzyme Q10 deficiency
    Coenzyme Q10 deficiency is a deficiency of Coenzyme Q10.
