Leigh's syndrome is a degenerative nervous system disorder with well-characterized neuropathology. The clinical picture shows progressive neurologic deterioration in infancy leading to death from respiratory arrest. Mitochondrial enzymatic deficiencies are implicated in the pathogenesis of the disease. A 6-month-old male infant with progressive neurologic deterioration and brain findings at autopsy consistent with Leigh's syndrome is described.
