[Unusual presentation of scurvy mimicking a neuroblastoma].
Arch Pediatr. 2011 Jan; 18(1):37-40.AP

Abstract

Scurvy, a disease related to ascorbic acid deficiency, remains rare in industrial countries. Ascorbic acid is a vitamin that intervenes most notably in the synthesis of collagen and catecholamines. We report the case of a 2-year-old boy hospitalized in a pediatric oncology unit because of an unusual presentation of scurvy revealed by pain and a significant increase in urinary catecholamine levels, raising fear of a neuroblastoma.
