Mitochondrial diseases are a diverse group of disorders caused by mutated genes that impair energy production in a patient’s cells, often with severe effects. Patients incur high medical costs when hospitalized, and suffer higher-than-typical rates of comorbid diseases and in-hospital mortality. Researchers who analyzed those costs in national databases say their findings underscore the importance of developing preventive strategies and therapies for these illnesses.
