Mitochondrial aminoacyl tRNA synthetases are essential for organelle protein synthesis. Genetic defects affecting the function of these enzymes may cause pediatric mitochondrial disease. Here, we report on a child with fatal neonatal lactic acidosis and recurrent hypoglycemia caused by mutations in EARS2, encoding mitochondrial glutamyl-tRNA synthetase 2.(More)
VARS2 encodes a mitochondrial aminoacyl-tRNA-synthetase. Mutations in VARS2 have recently been identified as a cause of mitochondrial encephalomyopathy in three individuals. However, clinical information remained scarce. Exome sequencing lead us to identify compound heterozygous pathogenic VARS2 variants in a boy presenting with severe lactic acidosis,(More)
