Scurvy-a forgotten disease with an unusual presentation.
Trop Doct 2009; 39(3):190-2TD

Abstract

We report an unusual case of scurvy where a six-year-old female presented with clinical and radiological features suggestive of juvenile idiopathic arthritis. However, follow-up radiological examination, carried out in view of refractory arthritis, was diagnostic for scurvy and the patient later responded well only with vitamin C therapy.
