Example text

Several years went by, and the mother brought the child to see me again. I reinstated the vitamin and it did seem to help her in that it seemed to calm her. The point is this: here we had a child whose biochemical abnormality was known. We knew that the enzyme responsible for carrying out the metabolic processing of three amino acids was defective. We also knew that this enzyme required vitamin B1 as a cofactor. It seems reasonable that if you recognize a cripple, you should at least offer him a cane to help him walk.

This child had been diagnosed before the screening tests had come into being and was already retarded by the time that the condition had been recognized. He developed a cold, just as any child might.

She had been investigated repeatedly for evidence of obscure infections, none of which had ever been shown to be present. I assumed that her fever was really a form of stress response to a nonexistent stressor. I believed that her brain was deceiving her insofar as it was under the impression that she was in some way being attacked by a stressor.
