Pearson Syndrome (PS) is a multi-system disease caused by a deletion in mitochondrial DNA. The hallmark features are sideroblastic anemia and pancreatic insufficiency. PS is often fatal in infancy. In addition to the hematological and pancreatic symptoms, PS can impair the heart, kidneys, eyes, ears and brain. Survivors develop Kearns-Sayre Syndrome.
