Prevalence is unknown.
Exercise intolerance with elevated lactate levels and mild intellectual deficit may also be present.
The syndrome is caused by ubiquinone deficiency. Mutations in the ADCK3/CABC1 gene have been detected in affected individuals. This gene is already known to play a role in ubiquinone biosynthesis in yeast.
The syndrome is transmitted as an autosomal recessive trait.
