Identifying a Clinically Relevant Mitochondrial Variant
It takes approximately seven years to diagnose a patient with a rare disease. With NEW CentoXome®, this doesn’t have to be the case.
In this case study, NEW CentoXome, our enhanced whole exome sequencing (WES), established a definite diagnosis of mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes. Despite the complexity of the case and failed analysis at other labs, NEW CentoXome was able to detect a known pathogenic variant in the mitochondrial gene, MT-ND5. As a result, CENTOGENE was able to provide a twenty-year-old female and her family with answers and hope surrounding this severe disease.
