Abstract

A patient with diagnosed MELAS (mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes) syndrome had developed psychological and behavioural disturbances at a later stage of his illness. Psychiatric care for this patient would not be possible without a multidisciplinary team approach involving multi-prong interventions from the different team members.
