A nutrition rehabilitation centre for children with xerophthalmia.

A nutrition rehabilitation centre for treatment of children with xerophthalmia was established in Madurai, India. Treatment was based on provision of locally available food, rich in protein and beta-carotene and cheap enough for the families concerned to buy at home. This diet alone, with general medical treatment for other diseases, was sufficient to reverse conjunctival xerophthalmia and corneal xerosis. Children with more severe xerophthalmia received additional vitamin A. The records of 296 children followed up for between two months and three years were analysed. The results of treatment at the centre seemed as good as those produced by more expensive, and usually unobtainable, hospital treatment. Participation of the mother in buying, cooking, and sharing the food given to her child was of some educational value.[1]
