Mohr–Tranebjærg syndrome (MTS) is a rare X-liked recessive syndrome also known as deafness–dystonia syndrome and caused by mutation in the TIMM8A gene. It was first described in 1960.[1] The severity of the symptoms may vary, but they progress usually to severe deafness and dystonia and sometimes are accompanied by cortical deterioration of vision and mental deterioration.
