Symptomatic selenium deficiency in a child on home parenteral nutrition


Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition 7(5): 783-786
Symptomatic selenium deficiency in a child on home parenteral nutrition
A girl 27 months old with microvillous atrophy who was maintained on long-term home parenteral nutrition presented with regression of walking skills. She had a tender skeletal myopathy affecting both legs only. Plasma selenium was less than 0.05 mu mol/litre (normal 0.8 to 1.6 mu mol/litre), red blood cell glutathione peroxidase was undetectable, and plasma glutathione peroxidase was 6 U/litre (normal 90 to 350 U/litre).
