PMID:  6799423     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Two cases of patients developing symptoms and signs of zinc deficiency while on total parenteral nutrition are presented. Supporting causes for the appearance of early low serum zinc levels are discussed. These cases serve to further stress the need of adding trace elements to solutions given to patients on long-term total parenteral nutrition.
