Symptomatic selenium deficiency in a child on home parenteral nutrition

, : Symptomatic selenium deficiency in a child on home parenteral nutrition. Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition 7(5): 783-786

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).

Infection studies with Pyrenophora avenae revealed that the resistance mechanism in Phalaris arundinacea involves induction of cathodic isoperoxidases which possibly function in the biosynthesis of lignin at the site of attempted penetration.

Autonomic dysfunction, including baroreceptor attenuation and sympathetic activation, has been reported in patients with myocardial infarction (MI) and has been associated with increased mortality. We tested the hypotheses that exercise training (...
