Vitamin B nutrition in the Nigerian tropical ataxic neuropathy


Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry 48(2): 154-156
Vitamin B nutrition in the Nigerian tropical ataxic neuropathy
Assessment of nutritional state of vitamin B components by plasma or blood values indicated riboflavin deficiency and possibly thiamin deficiency in Nigerian patients with tropical ataxic neuropathy and neurologically normal Nigerians who subsisted on predominant cassava diet. Serum folate, niacin, pyridoxine and pantothenic acid values were normal.
