The prevalence of 12 qualitative changes in tissues associated with malnutrition was studied in 2729 patients examined in 5 years. Of these 1788 were below 20, 714 were between 20 and 49, and 227 over 50 years of age. Lesions were recorded as either present or absent, without regard to intensity, duration or aetiology. Patients were classified as normal, underweight or overweight, from standard tables.
