What is protein-calorie malnutrition?

Protein-calorie malnutrition is called kwashiorkor. The name “kwashiorkor” is said to come from West Africa and means “deposed child”.

Kwashiorkor is a nutritional disorder of children that occurs after a baby is weaned from the breast. If treated promptly, the prognosis is good, but many patients have stunted physical development.

Very underweight children with kwashiorkor are known as marasmic-kwashiorkor.
