Example text

Although it does not feature in the acronym, hearing loss is a common finding in MELAS. Large kindreds and patient series have been reported, demonstrating that over 50% of patients have moderate or severe SNHL: 21 of 28 Australian patients with MELAS in a series were deaf, as were eight of 14 British patients in a series (Morgan-Hughes et al, 1995; Sue et al, 1998). Three constraints control the phenotypic expression of the mutation: the percentage of mutant mitochondrial DNA in the target tissue (though this percentage carries at most a loose correlation with clinical lesions), the degree of exposure to oxidative stress of different organs or cell populations, and unidentified collaborating somatic mutations that selectively enhance aspects of the syndrome.

Were found in six of 12 patients with mild to moderate deafness, and after excluding severe and profoundly deaf patients with a complete absence of responses, there were normal and symmetric brainstem evoked responses in 18 of 20 latencies recorded from 10 patients. Promontory stimulation testing in two patients was normal, and CT and MRI were reported as showing no lesions that could contribute to hearing loss. In addition, central auditory lesions have been reported as a cause of hearing loss in MELAS.
