Leigh's disease

Can anyone provide information on Leigh's disease, alternatively known as
subacute necrotizing encephalomyelopathy??  I've done a brief search on Medline
(some success) and was unable to find it in the Merck Manual.

Any information, general or otherwise, would be helpful.  A young child we know
was recently diagnosed with this condition (an improvement from the ignorance of
'failure to thrive') and I'm looking for information on aetiology, possible
treatments, prognosis, support groups, specialists, etc.

Regards,
