Common Name(s)

Leigh syndrome, French Canadian type

The French Canadian type of Leigh syndrome is an autosomal recessive severe neurologic disorder with onset in infancy. Features include delayed psychomotor development, mental retardation, mild dysmorphic facial features, hypotonia, ataxia, and the development of lesions in the brainstem and basal ganglia. Affected individuals tend to have episodic metabolic and/or neurologic crises in early childhood, which often lead to early death (summary by {2:Debray et al., 2011}). For a phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of Leigh syndrome, see {256000}.
