MELAS

Mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke-like episodes (MELAS), is a rare genetic mitochondrial disorder. Mitochondria are the powerhouses of our cells and when they do not work properly it can affect many different body systems. The brain, nervous system, and muscles are primarily affected in patients with MELAS.
