Samenvatting

Scheurbuik is een zeldzame ziekte bij zuigelingen in de huidige Westerse samenleving. De aandoening wordt beschouwd als een ziekte met slechts historische waarde. Niettemin zagen we recent drie jonge kinderen met scheurbuik. Behandeling met vitamine C gaf snel verbetering van de klachten. Het blijft belangrijk de symptomen te herkennen.

Summary

Infantile scurvy is a rare disease in Western countries. It is said to be only of historical interest. Recently three young children with scurvy were seen in our center. Symptoms disappeared after treatment with vitamin C. Signs of scurvy should always be looked for. A low grade of suspicion is still very important.
