Dear all,

Colleagues of mine had the following case this morning:

Three years old neglected girl. Kwashiorkor case: Bilateral oedema hands and feet, gut oedema, does not tolerate any oral intake. No fever. Managed in the structure several times for SAM treatment with complications.

There is no albumine in the hospital. Is there any alternative?

They have managed to convince the parents to take the girl to a better equiped hospital but we would like to hear from you for future reference

Thanks in advance!
