Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON)-plus is a maternally inherited genetic disorder of young males and characterized by severe progressive vision loss with other neurological and systemic symptoms. Here we present a young male with subacute progressive vision loss and Parkinsonism symptoms like right arm rigidity and endocrine abnormalities like hypoparathyroidism as a probable LHON-plus case.
