Abstract: 
Mitochondrial myopathy, lactic acidosis, and sideroblastic anemia (MLASA) syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disorder of oxidative phosphorylation and iron metabolism. The association between myopathy and sideroblastic anemia was initially reported in 1974. Here we report an 8.5 year old boy with normal cognitive function, suffering from chronic progressive weakness in his lower extremities, inability to walk and palor. Microcytic sideroblastic anemia, mild lactic acidosis and inflammatory myopathy (myositis) in muscle biopsy was detected and treated; the response to corticosteroid therapy and rehabilitation was excellent and the patient was ambulatory after four months.
