New LHON Webpage & German Translation of Brochure 

IMP is pleased to publish a new webpage dedicated to LHON, as well as the German translation of the LHON Brochure. Thank you to Lennart Sass at LHON Deutschland e.V. for the translation. The brochure, originally published in late 2020, is also available in Italian and English. 

LHON is a type of mitochondrial disease, which causes acute vision loss. The onset is generally in adolescence or early adulthood. Vision loss starts with no warning and frequently progresses very quickly from one eye to both.

There are many LHON patient organisations around the world as well as national mito patient organisations that support people with LHON.

Visit the LHON page.
