ABSTRACT
Abstract  Scurvy is a nearly-forgotten disease in developed countries where adequate nutrition is easily available. It still may occur, however, when, for a variety of reasons, people fail to eat a diet containing adequate vitamin C. We report the case of a 52-year-old patient with depression who developed scurvy.
