Mitochondrial disease is an inherited chronic illness that can be present at birth or develop later in life. It causes debilitating physical, developmental and cognitive disabilities including poor growth, loss of muscle coordination, learning disabilities and death.
Nearly one in 4,000 children in the United States will develop mitochondrial disease by the age of 10. Currently, there is no cure.
The team at The Mitochondrial Center of Excellence at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital provides compassionate medical care to children suffering from the disease while actively searching for a cure.
