The authors respond to a recent letter (Rossignol and Frye 2011) critical of their paper, “Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy and MRI reveal no evidence for brain mitochondrial dysfunction in children with autism spectrum disorder” (Corrigan et al. 2011). Further considerations regarding the assessment of mitochondrial dysfunction in autism spectrum disorder, and related treatment considerations, are discussed.
