Blood serum vitamin a levels in African children with dermatoses; clinical features and treatment

Reduced blood serum vitamin A concentrations were found in all patients with pyoderma (11.7 ± 4.0 mkg%), dermatitis and eczema (10.2 ± 2.8 mkg%) and cutaneous leishmaniasis (9.5 ± 2.6 mkg%). The best results of therapy for these dermatoses were obtained with retinol palmitate in multiple modality treatment.
