#6769 Picture of a Child with Kwashiorkor Disease from Severe Dietary Protein Deficiency by KAPD
This late 1960s photograph shows a seated, listless child, (see also PHIL ID# 6902), who was among many kwashiorkor cases found in Nigerian relief camps during the Nigerian-Biafran war.

Kwashiorkor is a disease brought on due to a severe dietary protein deficiency, and this child, whose diet fit such a deficiency profile, presented with symptoms including edema of legs and feet, light-colored, thinning hair, anemia, a pot-belly, and shiny skin. A large number of relief camps were established for nutrition assessment and feeding operations for the local villagers around the war zone.
