Thirty bilharzial patients
were studied for their vitamin A status. Of the patients, 30% were found
to have low-fasting serum retinol level below the acceptable level of
20 micrograms/dl and one-third were presented with night blindness. Oral
vitamin A therapy was effective in correcting the vitamin A deficiency
among this group of patients.
