Infantile Tremor Syndrome Persistence in Era of Development: An Old Story

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Infantile tremor syndrome is seen worldwide more commonly in the developing countries. Although various protein energy malnutrition awareness programme being run in many of these countries including India yet there is persistence of this disease. Here we present a case of 13 month old female child who visited RAPCC paediatrics OPD of Govt. Wenlock Hospital Mangaluru with history of respiratory distress, fever, tremor in limbs and loss of milestones. On examination she had pallor, hyper pigmentation in axilla and toes. Investigatory findings showed megaloblastic erythroid hyperplasia, hemoglobin- 1.6 g % and CT scan of brain showed central atrophic changes.
