Kwashiorkor is said to result from "pure" protein deficiency, whereas marasmus arises from protein and energy deficiency. These concepts are enshrined in the term protein-energy malnutrition. We now know that the malnutrition of these children is much more complex and is unlikely ever to be the… Expand
