Management of seizures in patients with primary mitochondrial diseases: consensus statement from the InterERNs Mitochondrial Working Group

"Primary mitochondrial diseases (PMDs) are the most prevalent metabolic disorders estimated at 1 in 4300. PMDs may be caused by pathogenic variants in both mitochondrial DNA genes and in more than 400 nuclear DNA genes [1]. Since mitochondria are essential organelles in virtually all human cells, PMDs can affect all organs, with a predilection for high-energy-demanding tissues, such as the central and peripheral nervous systems, skeletal muscle, heart and retina [1]."
