Disorders of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) maintenance are well-recognised causes of mitochondrial disease presentations in both adults and children. In this chapter, we review the expanding clinical spectrum associated with mutation of the nuclear-encoded RRM2B gene which encodes the small subunit of p53-inducible ribonucleotide reductase (p53R2). Both recessive and dominant RRM2B mutations have been reported which can lead to different, secondary mtDNA changes including quantitative loss of mtDNA copy number and clonally-expanded multiple mtDNA deletions in post-mitotic tissues.
