The authors report on a family with dominantly inherited progressive external ophthalmoplegia and a diagnostic and statistical manual (fourth revised edition) diagnosis of bipolar psychiatric disorder in several members. Skeletal muscle biopsy from the proposita showed decreased cytochrome c oxidase staining, several ragged-red fibers, and multiple mtDNA deletions. The authors identified a missense mutation (leucine 98-->proline) in the adenine nucleotide translocator 1 gene. The presence of bipolar affective disorder expands the phenotype of adenine nucleotide translocator 1 allelic variants.
