TOO FEW! - Detail #1 - Kwashiorkor

Kwashiorkor /kwɑːʃiˈɔrkər/ is a form of severe protein-energy malnutrition characterized by edema, irritability, anorexia, ulcerating dermatoses, and an enlarged liver with fatty infiltrates. Sufficient calorie intake, but with insufficient protein consumption, distinguishes it from marasmus. Kwashiorkor cases occur in areas of famine or poor food supply. (Wikipedia)
