Identifying Mitochondrial Disease: Case Studies
Diagnosing primary mitochondrial disease or ‘mito’ can be challenging due to the wide variety of symptoms and sub-groups. Many experts refer to it as the ‘notorious masquerader’ because it mimics many other illnesses. Join metabolic geneticist Dr Shanti Balasubramaniam to explore the multiple organ systems involved in mito and identify “red flag” symptoms. Paediatric and adult clinical cases will be presented to illustrate how GPs have an important role to play in identifying a suspected diagnosis of mito.
