  •   Objective  To analyze the clinical features and genetic background of mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalomyopathy (MNGIE).  Methods  The clinical data of an adult patient with MNGIE were retrospectively reviewed. Meanwhile, the mitochondrial disease-related gene of the patient and his families were detected by target area capture sequencing with NimbleGen solid phase chip.  Results  This patient presented with progressive pseudo-gastrointestinal obstruction, leukoencephalopathy, cachexia, peripheral neuropathy, extraocular muscle weakness, and multiple metabolic disorders. A homozygous mutation (TYMP gene c.217G>A) was identified. The patient's parents and sister were heterozygous for this novel mutation.  Conclusion  A novel TYMP gene mutation that caused MNGIE in a Chinese adult patient was confirmed by gene detection.
