Abstract

Epilepsy in patients with mitochondrial disorders, the mitochondrial epilepsies are challenging to diagnose and treat due to their heterogeneous clinical manifestations and are grossly under-recognized. High index of suspicion and meticulous analysis of clinical, biochemical and neuroimaging features can help in early diagnosis of mitochondrial epilepsies. There are various mechanisms postulated to explain the pathophysiological process in mitochondrial epilepsy.
