Mutations in SURF1, an assembly gene for cytochrome c oxidase (COX), the fourth complex of the oxidative phosphorylation system, are most frequently encountered in patients with COX deficiency. We describe a patient with Leigh syndrome harbouring a mutation in SURF1 who was reported decades ago with a tissue-specific cytochrome c oxidase deficiency.
