We describe two infants with hypotonia, absent respiratory effort, and giant mitochondria in neurons due to compound heterozygosity for 2 nonsense mutations of DNM1L. DNM1L has a critical role in regulating mitochondrial morphology and function. This observation confirms the central role of mitochondrial fission to normal human development.
