Mitochondrial diseases are a clinically heterogeneous group of disorders that arise as a result of dysfunction of the mitochondrial respiratory chain. The mitochondrial respiratory chain is the essential final common pathway for aerobic metabolism, and tissues and organs that are highly dependent on aerobic metabolism are preferentially involved in mitochondrial disorders[1].
