Abstract: 

When we talk about mitochondrial diseases, we refer to the most ubiquitous of metabolic disorders, with pathogenic mitochondrial DNA mutation being found in at least 1 in 8000 individuals.
The following statement reveals very vividly, the true nature of mitochondrial disease, “Mitochondrial disease may cause any symptom in any tissue at any age by any inheritance (A. Munics).
In view of the presence of mitochondria which are essential organelles of nearly all cells, with the exception of mature erythrocyte. Mitochondrial diseases may affect any organ system and for this reason are now called “Mitochondrial cytopathies”.
