PURPOSE/METHODS: The most common pathogenic mitochondrial mutation at nucleotide 11778 in Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy is usually detected by the loss of an SfaNI restriction site. To evaluate a false-positive diagnostic error in this molecular genetic assay, we investigated SfaNI polymorphism in 120 patients with bilateral optic atrophy. RESULTS/CONCLUSIONS: The ratio of false-positive to true-positive results was 1:36. Mitochondrial DNA polymorphism at nucleotide 11779 reflects a false- positive genetic error.
