Final Height is Negatively Related to Disease Burden in Mitochondrial Disease

Boal Rachel , Ng Yi Shiau , McFarland Robert , Cheetham Tim

Context: Abnormal growth and short stature are observed in patients with mitochondrial disease but it is unclear whether there is a relationship between growth, stature and muscle phenotype.Objectives: To examine growth and final height in patients with genetically confirmed mitochondrial disease, to describe growth patterns in the principle underlying genetic subgroups and to establish whether stature is related to disease severity.<p class="abstext...

Background: Many children with short stature (defined as height SDS <−2S.D.) have no identified cause for their growth impairment and are classified as either small for gestational age or idiopathic short stature depending on birth size. Whole exome sequencing (WES) is a useful tool to identify new genetic diagnoses in this group. Here we describe a recurrent NDUFB3 mutation in children with intra-uterine growth retardation, short stature and ...
