Kearns sayre syndrome also known as oculocraniosomatic disease with ragged red fibers is a mitochondrial myopathy with typical onset before 20 years of age. This is a case report of a 35 years old male who presented to us with ptosis, chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia (CPEO), pigmentary retinopathy, deafness and heart block.
Cells were characterized for mutant mtDNA at passage 2. Pearson syndrome fibroblasts (GM04516) and lymphocytes (GM04515) and Kearns-Sayre syndrome fibroblasts (GM06225) and lymphocytes (GM06224) were obtained from the Coriell Institute for Medical Research.Learn More
Kearns-Sayre syndrome is characterised by the development of progressive external ophthalmoplegia, ptosis, and retinitis pigmentosa with onset before the age of 20. 4,6 It is usually associated with such other neurological manifestations as cerebellar ataxia and sensorineural hearing loss. Up to 50% of patients present heart disorders, with the most frequent being conduction disorders.Learn More
One of these diseases is Kearns Sayre syndrome (KSS), described for the first time in 1958, where different large-scale deletions of different sizes and at different positions have been reported in the mitochondrial genome of patients with similar clinical symptoms.Learn More

Kearns-Sayre syndrome is caused by defects in mitochondria, which are structures within cells that us oxygen to convert the energy from food into a form that can be used by cells. This process is called oxidative phosphorylation.Although most DNA is packaged in chromosomes within the nucleus (nuclear DNA), mitochondria also have a small amount of their own DNA called mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA).Learn More
What is Kearns Sayre Syndrome? Kearns Sayre Syndrome is due to defects in the DNA in mitochondria, the parts of cells that generate energy for the body to do its work. Kearns Sayre syndrome seems to occur sporadically (is not inherited). It affects people of all ethnic backgrounds.Learn More

One patient had Kearns-Sayre syndrome (KSS), which is usually a sporadic disorder. This is the first case to be linked to a nuclear gene defect. We also provide important insight into how RRM2B mutations cause disease by demonstrating impaired RNR assembly using Blue native gel electrophoresis.Learn More
We report a case of a 40-year-old man affected by the Kearns-Sayre syndrome who underwent an elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy under general anaesthesia. We describe the management of general anaesthesia in this rare myopathy, with emphasis on the use of rocuronium as muscle blocking agent. Induction was achieved with propofol and fentanyl, and general anaesthesia was maintained with.Learn More
The Kearns-Sayre syndrome is a mitochondrial disorder (generally due to mitochondrial DNA deletions) that causes ophthalmoplegia, retinopathy, ataxia and brain abnormalities such as leukoencephalopathy.Learn More
