Mitochondrial Encephalomyopathy Presenting with Respiratory Failure in an Adult
Abdullah A. Abba

Abstract:
Mitochondrial disease, a recently recognised and rapidly expanding field of medicine, has variable presentation. A spectrum of conditions has been described as purely a consequence of mitochondrial defect(s) while others are presumed to be causally related. We present a case of mitochondrial disease presenting with respiratory failure and discuss the respiratory manifestations of this condition and its management. There is a need for awareness of the characteristics of respiratory manifestations of the mitochondrial diseases.
