Abstract

We report a 2 years old girl affected with scurvy. The clinical onset was characterized by lower limb pain so severe that she was enable to walk, and by mucous-cutaneous haemorrhage. These data firstly addressed the diagnosis toward rheumatological or malignant diseases. Subsequently the peculiar eating habits of the girl together with the radiologic findings led us to the correct diagnosis. The nearly undetectable ascorbic acid plasma concentration definitively confirmed the diagnosis. The reported case allows us to discuss the differential diagnosis of scurvy.
