Abstract We read with great interest the letter by Jorstad et al (1) describing a 16-year-old boy with Leber hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) harboring a mitochondrial DNA 10663T>C point mutation and his favorable response to idebenone treatment. We also recently encountered a patient with LHON who had an unusual mitochondrial DNA mutation and experienced marked improvement with idebenone.
