About the Authors
  • Mitochondrial disorders are a highly diverse group of conditions that can affect almost every major system in the human body, often mimicking common disorders. This clinical variety often results in prolonged and often dangerous, diagnostic delays. This textbook provides a practical framework, to enable rapid identification, investigation, and treatment of mitochondrial disorders across the spectrum of clinical practice. Clinically relevant and comprehensive, this textbook employs a system- and case-based approach for practitioners of all levels. It focuses on major phenotypic features, syndromes and management relevant for clinical practice, within a broad overview of the field. This interactive book supports readers with knowledge distilled from over 20 internationally recognized, mitochondrial experts.

    • An accessible primer for practicing physicians, allowing a concise and pragmatic approach to the diagnosis and clinical management of a range of mitochondrial disorders
    • Offers a unique system- and case-based approach, putting theory into everyday practice, and is authored by a range of international experts in the field of mitochondrial medicine
    • Presents a framework underpinning the clinical to approach mitochondrial disorders, enabling readers with particular interest to focus on organ-specific phenotypes, whilst also generating a broad overview of the field
