Abstract

Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON), a mitochondrial disease, is clinically characterized by a bilateral subacute loss of central vision consecutive to optic nerve involvement. In some cases of LHON, neurological features are reported including multiple sclerosis-like (MSL) phenotype. We report one additional male patient displaying LHON-MSL associated with the prevalent G11778A mutation and review the cases with expendable data published so far in the literature. We discuss the respective roles of inflammation and energetic metabolism dysregulation in the development of brain lesions. We propose to treat these patients early with both antioxidative and immunosuppressive drugs in order to avoid further handicap.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 7. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 05 August 2014.
All research outputs
#1,871,402
of 12,277,940 outputs
Outputs from Clinical Neurology & Neurosurgery
#59
of 814 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#32,747
of 202,252 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Clinical Neurology & Neurosurgery
#1
of 24 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,277,940 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 83rd percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 814 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.5. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 91% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 202,252 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 24 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% of its contemporaries.
