Symptomatic zinc deficiency in a breast-fed infant
Nutrition containing zinc is of special practical importance in infants and children. Perinatal zinc deficiency manifestations include erosive dermatitis, alopecia, diarrhoea, central nervous system dysfunction and immune system deficiency. We present a case story of an ex-preterm, exclusively breast-fed infant who presented with irritability, clinical signs of infection, an atypical rash and signs of oral candidiasis. Blood tests showed low plasma levels of zinc and subsequent analysis showed reduced zinc levels in the breast milk.
