We report a subject in whom Leigh syndrome and partial deficit of cytochrome-c oxidase (COX) were associated with epilepsia partialis continua (EPC). The clinical picture and the frequency of seizures were not modified by several therapeutic attempts with different antiepileptic drugs; however, treatment with ACTH depot induced a long-term reduction in severity of myoclonic jerks.
