Abstract

Psychiatric symptoms in patients with mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes (MELAS) syndrome are rarely reported. We report a case of bipolar mood disorder, secondary to MELAS, in an adolescent female patient. To our knowledge, this is the first such report in the literature.
