Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Scurvy is caused by a deficiency of ascorbic acid. We describe a 31-year-old Hispanic man who had perifollicular hemorrhages, follicular hyperkeratosis, corkscrew hairs, and gingival hemorrhage after consuming a peculiar and restricted diet for 1 year. A diagnosis of scurvy was made and the patient's disease resolved after treatment with vitamin C.
