Rights and PermissionsRights and Permissions

A 6 mouth old Libyan girl was seen with well - defined erythematous scaly, exudative and crusted lesions around the mouth, neck, back perineum, thighs and legs suggestive of acrodermatitis enteropathica. Two of the 3 other siblings had also suffered from similar lesions for a month or so at the age of 5-7 months. All of them were on breast feeding and improved on weaning. This is believed to be type II acrodermatitis enteropathica caused by deficient secretion of zinc in the mother's milk.
