Abstract

Conclusion

We hypothesize that the A3243G mutation might be underdiagnosed, as patients could suffer from an unexplained cardiac death before the diagnosis is made. We advise performing regular repeated ECGs and echocardiography in all children carrying a A3243G mtDNA mutation independently from the presence of cardiac symptoms.
