#7478 Picture of a Nurse Standing with a Group of African Children Showing Symptoms of the Protein-Deficiency Disease Kwashiorkor by KAPD
This photo shows children and a nurse attendant at a Nigerian orphanage in the late 1960’s. Notice four of the children with gray-blond hair, a symptom of the protein-deficiency disease kwashiorkor.

Kwashiorkor sufferers, i.e., inadequate dietary protein intake, also show signs of thinning hair or “Flag Sign”, edema, inadequate growth, and weight loss. If started in time, improving calorie and protein intake will correct kwashiorkor, however growth is still stunted.
